Marcella (Santa Cruz)
Boat is hoisted onto the pier at Santa Cruz… this was also the practice at Monterey in the winter months. Original boats from these unprotected harbors can be identified by the lifting rings set into the keels.

Pescatori (Pittsburg)
Story Link (story includes info on Seeno/Siino family)
An original boat from the Pittsburg Ca. area is restored and placed in dry display at the city marina. Note the open form with no cabin, good for working nets and long lines in the fair weather up river. Some say the reduced top side minimized wind drag, allowing a boat to easily drift with drift lines or nets.

Wetton Boat

Unidentified

This clip from a fuzzy Getty stock image shows the aftermath of a 1946 tsunami at Princeton-by-the-Sea, Ca (near Half Moon Bay). One boat appears to be under construction, showing her steam-bent ribs and no deck. The other looks like a Monterey boat, but possibly without the clipper bow. While the classic flared bow made for a dryer boat in small chop, the straight stem was better overall for working in the open sea.

The big 1946 rupture in the fault near the Aleutians also sent a tsunami to central California, in a glancing blow. The large wave swept boats inland, where they blocked roadways in tiny Princeton-by-the-Sea, a 35-mile drive south of San Francisco.

Princeton-by-the-Sea, 1946 tsunami.

Unidentified II, with a Hicks!
