Zolezzi …

We have two of the Zolezzi fleet tied up next to each other . Not sure where this photo was taken but you have the Jeannine and the Lone Wolf in this photo. Simply can’t talk about San Diego tuna industry without talking about the Zolezzi family. Owned multiple seiners and the famous Fuel dock next to Embarcadero and Finger Piers .

Ocean Pearl…

Ocean Pearl finishing up a set in the Western Pacific, hopefully  it filled a well. Share your photos with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net

Conquest….

Seiner Conquest on the hunt in the Western Pacific. One of Joe Madruga’s boats, Mr Madruga owned 14 seiners and I believe he had a total of 6 at one time truly a legend in the fleet  . sdtunaboats@cox.net

Sea Chase….

You want to talk about a seiner that just destroyed it, here you go Sea Chase seemed to always be coming in with a full load. Really would love more pictures of this rig and the rest of this company seiners. I think there was around five  others King Oscar , Portobello , Marne K, Chiriqui 1 , Granada . Any help would be appreciated . sdtunaboats@cox.net

Madrugador…

This is such a great photo of the past. Madrugador looks to be empty after unloading at Van Camps down at 10th avenue terminal. Spent many days at that exact spot, Dole pineapple now has that spot . Thank You to the Texeira family for sharing this photo , share your photos with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net

Margaret Z…

One of the last seiners ever built in San Diego September 1989.  The Margaret Z heading out of the bay on a trial run , it looks more like a Yacht with the design changes. share your pictures with us at sdtunaboats@cox.net

Finger Piers ….

What a great shot, I’m just guessing the 50s or 60s . Absolutely love these shots of the old seiners tied up at Finger Piers plus look at those great cars, who wouldn’t want a few of those classics now. sdtunaboats@cox.net
