Nice to see the Picture. My grandfather built the “Mar” boats back when I was born (late 50′s). Still remember the boathouse and the wood steamer box from when I was very young. Thanks for bringing back memories

Hi Mike, Thank you for the note. Was your grandfather’s name Tarabochia? Or was it another name, He built beautiful boats with great shear lines and sensible transom sterns. Where did he learn his trade.

Yes, Mario was my maternal grandfather. They shortened the last name to Tara when he arrived in Canada. He came from a family of boat builders, 5 brothers I think.

My father Glenn Martinolich built and fished the Marlady (Mike above is correct the actual boat building skills were Tara) and fished it from 1952 until he retired in 1996 43 years as skipper he then sold the boat to his son.
I look after sister ship Mar Brothers, now ‘Viking Mariner’, retired and based at Montague Harbour and Ladysmith
My great grandfather was a ship builder. My great uncle John Dominic Martinolich owned a ship building company in California and tacoma/Stockton washington. All my relatives on that side of family dead now some 25yrs. Sure would like to know more. Is this one of our boats??
Dominic in response to your November 26 2014 post, this was not one of your boats but I am interested in more info on the Martinolich family in Washington state etc. Venazio Martinolich was my great Grandfather whom from what Iuderstand was born in 1891 in Tacoma, Washington Apparently Venanzio and Mariano (Venanzio’s older brother ) started fishing in Tacoma, then Venanzio moved north to Canada.
The Mar-Lady is now the Kendall P based out of Sitka Alaska.
My grandfather was Francisco Martinolich, DeLisle MS. Any relatives?
