Colberg Boat Works, Stockton CA

Most recent update: August 18, 2012.


Colberg Boat Works was started in the late 1890s and survived into the 1990s.  The yard was immediately to the east of Stephen Bros., at 848 West Fremont Street: see it from the air on Google here - you can see the old railway, but the yard itself appears to be abandoned.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com.
