  • Great video, Joe. Ron gave me a copy of his book at the Book and Author event at the opening of Cruiseport. Ron, Peter Prybot, Joe Orlando, Mark and I were all there with our books — all of them with maritime themes. It was a memorable day!


  • great interview ….love Ron and his book…hearing him makes me want to read it again…


    • You have no idea how much fun I had doing this interview. Ron has the most amazing memory down to the last details. Look for part III tomorrow morning at 8:00AM


  • What a great guy! A great book! I could talk to him all day! Thanks Cappy!


  • Thanks Joe for introducing us to Mr. Gilson and A Island No More!

    We are always in awe of the men who worked in the
    Gloucester fishing industry….their work ethic and of course the stories.


  • Another good one Joe.

  • I am currently a writing and publishing student at Emerson College in my sophomore year. I have been assigned to complete an extensive six-week documentary project for my reasearch writing course. As a Wakefield, MA native, and a lover of the Northshore, I have chosen to do my documentary on the changes that have taken place in the Gloucester community (speciifically in the fishing industry) during the 20th century. I would also love to explore the town’s current state and what it’s future holds.
    I came across Mr. Gilson’s blog and thought it was so wonderfully done. Does anyone here know anyway I could get an interview with him? I contacted him via e-mail with the address a week or so ago and havent gotten a reply. If anyone could put me in contact with anyone who could help me with this project in any way I would be infinitely grateful!

    Thanks so much everyone,
    Amanda Bondi
