Monterey Fishing Boat Rededication

Monterey Fishing Boat Rededication

We are having a ceremony on May 2nd at 10:30 to rededicate our Monterey fishing boat built by John DeStefano. It has been docked in the Marina since 2008 and now has found its permanent home at the corner of 3rd and Marina.  The ceremony will be in front of the boat and then we are coming back to the museum for light refreshments and to enjoy a display of pictures of boats built by Angelo Siino another boat builder from Monterey, formerly a resident of Pittsburg.  Many of these boats were used by local fishermen here and in Alaska.  Pescatori 001
