Distance was a problem. Alan is a Rhode Islander, and I’m a Mainer. ” 19 ALL FISHERMEN ARE LIARS Alden, who has always been skeptical of women and relationships that last longer than ﬁfteen minutes, chuckled. “Rhode Island to Maine . . what’s that? A couple hundred miles? Sounds perfect to me. ” This I chose to ignore and got very interested in the menu. Neither Alden nor I had to wonder about or discuss the fact that ﬁshermen often have trouble maintaining relationships, and I suppose it’s true of anyone who chooses to go to sea for extended periods.
Every swing of the chipping hammer fed the downward spiral of Alan’s entire being. I have to admit that by this time I was so weary of constant bad news and negativism that I terminated, as gently as I could, the remains of our relationship/friendship. I had no regrets about doing so, and only thought of Alan when Alden brought him up. Alden had ordered the rum and Coke and sat anticipating an answer to his question of what had become of Alan. I didn’t ﬁnd it strange that he should ask about Alan after so much time had elapsed, as the Dry Dock was Alan’s favorite unwinding spot and George and Tommy were two of his closest friends.

As quickly as Norman had interrupted the storm scene, he exited, leaving Alden’s thoughts and concentration on the sea story. , as the next fact that Alden conveyed was that he couldn’t get the buoy marking the end of his gear aboard the boat. He tried in vain again and again to get close enough for one of his men to reach it with a gaff, but with each attempt, either a gust of wind would blow the bow off or a wave would push the ﬂag just out of reach.
