Quiz: Can you identify these unmarked local long-range sportfishing boats?


San Diego is famous for its sportfishing industry, and the flagship vessels are the big, beautiful, cow tuna chasing machines that head way down south on long-range trips to battle the biggest tuna and wahoo in the Pacific Ocean. This exclusive brotherhood of boats are iconic in lore and looks – but remove the names on the sides and stern and the task of identifying them can be a challenge.

Are you up to the task of naming these boats based on their unique lines and shapes?

What's the name of this tuna chaser?
