The story of the 37 year old fisherman stuck at sea has striking similarities to the popular book and movie, The Life Of Pi. Alvarenga originally set off towards northern Mexico in December 2012 on what he expected to be a short shark fishing trip. When a part of his boat became altered and broken, he drifted until he reached a beach 13 months later. Similarly, in The Life Of Pi, Piscine Motor Patel was on a journey with his immediate family to Canda from India when the ship carrying them and their cargo (animals from the zoo they were selling) had a breach and started to sink. Pi was saved from the ship, but continued to drift further out into the ocean.

JOHN A. DAVIS Anderson Steel Service, Inc. Charles realized that the increasing frequency of proposals from Peter suggested a restlessness for change not evident in his two older sons, Robert and Frank, who were also Peter’s seniors in the family business.
