Old Campbells Shipyard…

I recently received this photo of The Campbells Shipyard back in its active years.  Im guessing this could be in early 80s . Today there is a Hilton Hotel and Petco Park across the street among other things. sdtunaboats@cox.net

Mariner – Marinero F…..

Thank you to my good Friend Kevin Madruga for sharing this beautiful photo of the Marinero F which was the Mariner, one of my favorite seiners in San Diego. I asked for pictures of the Mariner and Kevin delivered . Anyone else have any ? This seiner was built by Martinac Shipyard in 1973. sdtunaboats@cox.net

Snapper….

Great Logo on the Castagnola owned seiners. Im told this is a Red Snapper as a  tribute to Uncle Louie himself who’s nickname was Snapper. Sensational logo  on the  Antonina C, Uncle Louie and the Andrea C. sdtunaboats@cox.net
