I fished the New Image on a 3/4 to SBI . I remember that boat being a money pit from the start. When they first started running it the boat it ran on triple engines.
Sea Biscuit (now at Cisco's and operated by Capt. Bobby Valney) was the Patrician. 3 engines operated by Mike Thompson via Dana Wharf. The 1.5 days to Tanner were the shit. Many 100+days on cows.that qualifier 85 sure looks like those famous Ditmars which have gone through many name changes with their sisters.
I may be wrong here but: Salty Dog 85 which turned into the Finalista 100 and was run by John Pratt burned & sank in Morro Bay 1982 before heading back to SD. (thanks for the info Tunafin)
Islander was the Old Red Rooster?
Big Game 90 was the ??? shit, i forgot, now named Chief
then there was the Polaris III --> Holiday --> Dolphin III(?)--> Tribute
Cherokee Geisha/Old Glory
Mustang/Sea Adventure II * Corrected
Deep Adventure III/Constitution
Encore/Sea Adventure sister ship was a dive boat in long bch? Great Escape(?)

Used to work on that boat in the 90's when Bob Hodgdon still owned it.Sea Biscuit (now at Cisco's and operated by Capt. Bobby Valney) was the Patrician. 3 engines operated by Mike Thompson via Dana Wharf. The 1.5 days to Tanner were the shit. Many 100+days on cows.

One comes to mind; the Vagabond has two staterooms under the bait tanks.Which boat had bunks in the back of the boat under the bait tanks? Went on it about 8 years ago but so much time has passed I forgot what the boat was called and probably a few name changes sure didn't help. The chief made the best grilled cheese sandwiches!
I remember the old Del Mar in the above photos, I don't know if any people remember Branny who was the skipper of the Del Mar back in the 70's. That guy had some character and a big set of Go Nads, He didn't hold back anything that was on his mind. I remember one time we we were fishing halibut off the chart house in 10 FEET OF WATER and probably 20yds off the beach and the Life Guard boat thought we were in trouble and came to help us, because we were in that close to the beach, But we weren't in any trouble. The Life Guard told us we were to close to shore and could be a hazard for swimmers with us being that close. Branny looked at him and said "I don't see any Swimmers out in the water" and he went back in the wheel house and got on the P.A and told the fisherman to keep fishing. The Life guard boat took off and that was the last we seen of them!! We Killed the Halibut that day in the shallow's, All the fish were 10-30lbs. When passengers bounced Scampi's off the bottom, The Scampi's almost came flying out of the water!!
Quite a few are covered in this thread. Others are in separate threads on the site from when the boat was sold or renamed. Others you may have to ask on BD by posting a thread on the subject if you know the name of the boat currently. Also, the Internet has quite a few useful websites that can help.Can't find the list of ALL the sport boat name changes
