As most fishermen Dick could regale people with interesting stories, not all were about fish. I remember one he told of being on the boat early one morning and seeing another fisherman's boat in the seagrass. Better check this out he thought & discovered a young mute woman who had run out of gas the night before. After towing her boat to shore
he finally got to back to fishing.
