How do I tell which immagration record is correct?

My search results for my great grandfather brought up three different ships all listing his name and the lady he traveled with. Two of the boats arrived in July 1906 and one in June. Two records have their names crossed out and the one where they are not, the boat only has 4 passengers.

Is there an explanation as to why he was crossed out or why he may be listed on all 3 ships, when clearly the timeline of all records make that a physical impossibility? Did they maybe go from one boat to another? Should I assume the record that does not have their names crossed out is the correct one?
