    Worked a few years as lead carpenter at C. F. Koehlers yard in San Diego…mostly wooden boats. Everything from schooners to skiffs, power and sail. C.F. Wanted to build a new express cruiser along the lines of his dads earlier powerboats, so he built a half model, them an inch scale model that we towed around the marina…looking closely at the trim…a poor mans tank test. We built that boat out in wood and plopped that big John Deere in her, she was a beaut. Still turning heads. But while the crew went home tired with epoxy coated splinters in their hands, C. F. With just as many splinters, would stay up late at the boat shop playing trumpet with his jazz band. I’d come in early the next day ready for work, and there is the boss with a fat lip…but not from a bar fight. He was blowing that trumpet all night.
    So, many thanks for the jazz boatbuilding clip…so very well done…maybe I’ll take a row tomorrow with sonny on the iPod!
