Example text

Alden slapped a knee and laughed even harder as the women maintained four separate and 21 ALL FISHERMEN ARE LIARS distinct narratives of social obligations. Thank goodness they were oblivious to the man they were entertaining. Sensing that the waitress was reaching the end of her patience, I ordered a crabmeat sandwich for myself and fried clams for Alden. The door to the kitchen closed behind our waitress before Alden could interrogate her about when and where the clams had been dug. No matter; Alden shrugged and focused again on the incessant chatter at the adjacent table.

His tale featured the requisite white knuckles, seasickness, and terrifying sea state. Suffice it to say that the men of the Margaret F. had a horrific seventy-two hours. I am sure some of them prayed for their lives; one even cried and accused Alden of attempted murder. The intimate details of people’s behavior and conversation in lifethreatening situations are, I assume, universal and seldom spoken of. It is within the context of what is not shared in the retelling that the bonds or kinships among people of the sea exist.

They were concerned because they could no longer distinguish my little steel-hulled fishing boat from the waves cluttering the centers of their radar screens, and worried that because of this, they might inadvertently get too close to me, especially if the conditions deteriorated and further hindered their maneuverability. Seeing as the captains had not referred to us as the “idiots” during this last exchange, I thought it wise to let them know that I was paying attention, and that we were all maintaining what I considered a safe distance, but that I was already extremely limited in maneuverability.
