San Diego’s Koehler Kraft has been building and restoring wooden boats for nearly 70 years.
C.F. Koehler grew up working in the boatyard his father founded in 1938. There’s even a faded photo of him clasping a wrench in his little fist when he was hardly old enough to sit up. Even then, it was evident that Clarence Frederick Koehler Sr. had plans for this first-born son.
