Capt. Billy Tyne (voiceover): The fog's just lifting. Throw off your bow line; throw off your stern. You head out to South channel, past Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island. Past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid. Blow your air-horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keeper's kid on Thatcher Island. Then the birds show up: black backs, herring gulls, big dumb ducks. The sun hits ya - head North. Open up to 12 - steamin' now. The guys are busy; you're in charge. Ya know what? You're a goddamn swordboat captain. Is there any thing better in the world?
Bobby Shatford: I got a woman who I can't stand to be two feet away from. Captain Billy Tyne: Congratulations. Bobby Shatford: Then again, I love to fish. Captain Billy Tyne: Son, you've got a problem.
