  1. The historic I think was OWN BY THE VIRISSIMO
    FAMILY , MAYBE ROLAND OWNED IT , HIS BROTHER’S COOKIE AND OLLIE RAN THE BOAT FOR YEARS SHE WAS ABOUT 130-135 FOOT LONG AND HELD ABOUT 180 TONS IT WAS BUILT AT PETRIC SHIPYARD, THE MAIN ENGINE WAS A ENTERPRISE .THE GOOD OLD DAYS….

  2. The pic of the historic was taken by my dad Fred Mcdonell. The names you mentioned like Rowland I remember my dad talking about and knowing them.
    Fred was a skipper for many years

  3. I fished with Richard (Cookie) Virissimo for about 3 years as a speed boat driver. The boat belong to Roland’s wife Virginia’s family. Her brother ran it for awhile also. If I recalled correctly she held 220. Ran out of San Diego.
