Mary S…

Working seiner, Mary S is way out of water I’m guessing she’s unloading or just finished . Built in 1971 by San Diego Marine later changed name to South Seas  briefly before being sold to Venezuela . Share your photos and memories with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net

6-7 wide…

Now thats a shot with seiners . Must have been sometime in the 80s or early 90s . The fleet was definitely in , someone must follow this page from Samoa that has photos. Would love to some 80s photos form Samoa. Share your memories and photos with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net

J M Martinac..

Great seiner , great name. One of the last rigs built at Martinac and it had a slight design switch with the stern engine. Also very few Martinac seiners were actually painted white , maybe a handful. Share your memories and photos at sdtunaboats@cox.net

Carol Linda…

Carol Linda doing a little net work. Does not appear to be in San Diego most likely a Western Pacific port. I believe this seiner is now fishing under Mexican flag. Send in your photos and memories to sdtunaboats@cox.net

Martinac seiners…

Martinac seiner in a middle of a set. Im guessing this is either the Marietta or the Mary Antoinette . These little Martinac seiners basically all made money . You could add the Pisces ,Anne M,  Polaris and Cabrillo that were this style seiner . Send in your photos and memories to sdtunaboats@cox.net

Grenadier…

My site has blessed me with many great memories. I have met many wonderful people from all around the world. I recently had the absolute pleasure to meet Wyatt Uhlein, Grandson of Wyatt Uhlein Jr. who owned a few seiners including the Sandra C and the Grenadier . He told me how his Grandfather named  the Grenadier after his favorite place Grenadier Island in upstate New York on Lake Ontario. And the Sandra C was named after his Grandmother Sandra. Its always great learning more about the people who worked in the fleet . Thanks for the talk Wyatt . Share your ,memories and photos with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net.

El Rey

Beautiful shot of the El Rey launched as the King Oscar in 1973. At the time this seiner was under Columbia flag. Still looks great.  sdtunaboats@cox.net
