    (with upper deck).
  • State-of-the-art electronics and equipment.

Captains: Frank Rescino & Mike Rescino

She's a classic wooden boat with a long tradition at fisherman's wharf: the Lovely Martha is the third "Martha" to carry fisherman out the Golden Gate.

Four generations of the captain's family have guided still more generations to catch hundreds of thousands of fish since 1959 when this boat was built.

Since 1908
