Grandpa Bobby tells his story: some people offered him a job smuggling emeralds from South America, but later double-crossed him, tried to kill him, and stole his beloved fishing boat. Ever since then, he's been trying to track them down and get back his boat. It hurt to think that everyone thought he was dead, but it was necessary. First, he didn't want the guys he was looking for to know he was still alive; second, he also knew that if his son found out, he would, true to form, drop everything and rush down to South America without another thought. Grandpa Bobby was in a bar in a small fishing village in Colombia when he saw Paine's interview on the satellite TV.
Jesus borrows Peter’s boat so that he can teach from the lake then he asks him to get his nets after a long unsuccessful fishing day, to throw his nets out to the water and try to catch some fish again. At this moment Peter’s immediate reply is more like, “Yeah, whatever Jesus. I’m the fishermen and you are the carpenter.” but then the line that was the catalyst to Peter’s new life, “But at your word I will let down the nets.” 17 This decision was the first step into the greatest journey of his life.

Then Jesus does not ask a question but tells Peter what he will be doing for the rest of his life, “... from now on you will be catching men.”19 At this point, Peter finally realized that this carpenter from Galilee was more than just a carpenter but that the miracle He just produced revealed the presence of God, and that was what Peter needed to start the journey into becoming one of the most famous people in

Nantucket was a Quaker community, these groups of people reconcile their beliefs in non-violence with their occupation in the incredibly violent world of whaling by they had hoped to support themselves not a fishermen but a farmers and shepherds on this grassy, pond-speckled crescent without wolves.

That night when Kiowa got wasted, I sort of sank down into the sewage with him… Feels like I’m still deep shit.”(Page 150) Bowker is also intelligent and is well supported by his parents, but he did not see any meaning in getting a job or even going to school. He does not have the words to explain what he went through or how he feels and he tries to hide it.

In addition, for the next ten years of Watson's life governments and NGOs would work with him to work from hunting the whales to saving the whales.

I've never been fishing before let alone riding in a fishing boat. A couple of hours before the derby was to start my Uncle Deck was to going to teach me the fine "art" of fishing. The thought of hooking my own worm made me want to scream, just the feeling of the worms body sliding in and out of my fingers sent shivers down my spine. It was the most disgusting think I ever felt, but eventually I came over my fear and was able to hook the worm myself, just in time for the derby to start .Although I didn't catch the "big one" but the one I did catch was a twelve pound large mouth bass, it took me about forty-five minutes to finally reel it in. Uncle Deck surprised me before we left the cabin, he had the large-mouth bass I caught taxidermy and mounted on a wooden plaque for me, to this day it still hangs on the wall of my grandparents house.
