Romeo started to work from scratch in the island, without a net or money to buy a boat and counting only on the lessons he had from his dad when he was a kid. He didn´t have a single dime to invest, but he has always been a fighter.
For five years he fished with a fishing rod since morning till night to get money and he sailed in other fishermen’s boat till he was able to buy one of his own. His fishing boat is called “Lyramae” like his two oldest daughters, but he can´t afford to buy the paint to write the name on it. He built his fishing boat with the aid of his mum’s second husband and it took three months to have it ready before it could be used to fish.
