  1. My daughter was named after your boat in 1976 or 1975 off cabo San Lucas after our cruiser fishing spinner dolphin of course for yellowfin came across your boat that just set a wrap on a school. We were looking for a girls name in case my wife had a girl, I loved the name, hence my daughters name is Marla Marie amormino, a pro athlete and equine judge. We are Sicilian heritage and live in l.a. I’ve always called her tuna boat baby to this day, in fact she has personalized plates tuna boat. She will follow up soon with photos.

  2. Thanks for for response jimmy. Iam not good and barely use this I pad. But let me tell u it gets better. After I get u pictures of her license plates and her, Iam looking forward to speaking or meeting u and your family. Marla just moved in to help me from Carlsbad to lend a hand due to this horrific back of mine. Not people would do that, however she is a equine judge and judges many horse shows in San Diego. I want to find a photo I believe I have on the Marla Marie on that set that I will blow up for u. Talk to u soon.
