Mary Antoinette….

Happy New Year. I wanted to start the New Year off with a photo of The Mary Antoinette for Owner ,Mr John Zolezzi . Over the last year I got to know John and he’s a wonderful man. I walk around the neighborhood and I pass his house , he comes out from time to time and we chat fishing for a while , what a man , I love soaking up  his stories and memories of the fleet . Once in a while his son John 240, will also stop by or his neighbor Matt Freitas will be outside and damn is that a good time . Have a Blessed 2022 and share your photos with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net or on Twitter @sdtunaboats

Broadway Pier…

A look back at The Broadway Pier, with all the seiners docked on the south side, I’m guessing it was Christmas time . A follower sent this to me so I’m not taking credit for this photo but I do appreciate it. Share your photos at sdtunaboats@cox.net or on Twitter @sdtunaboats

Elizabeth C.J ….

Susan Soares sends in this photo of her Dads model of The Elizabeth C.J , made for him by Joe Silva . Wow does this bring back memories, my good friend lived right across the street and I used to ride my bike as a kid to his house , hoping the garage was open and I could get a look inside to see Joe’s models.
