  1. I met salvi years ago working as ayoung man doing ships repairs around the fort area and water front in the city, I was a classmate with his daughter Christina, and joked at times that I would walk for him when he retired, but never really took up the chance and adventially moved to Tampa from Gloucester in the fall of 1996 ” I got to know alot of the commercial fisherman over my years there, and can respect the job and work they Do in the harms way of danger they can work in. Though I never had the desire to work a boat
