Vessels Built by Hinton Electric Co.
compiled by John M. MacFarlane and Christopher J. Cole 2017
They had various storefront locations starting in 1900 on Government street over the years where they sold toasters, vibrators and gas launch engines. Their shipyard seems to have been on Bay Street somewhere, they were in liquidation from 1914 to 1916 and all assets were sold. They operated a launch that did trips to the Gorge Waterway.
