New York Times Best Selling Author Randy Wayne White just published his newest Doc Ford novel and one of the key characters in the book is Captain Fitzpatrick. Captain Fitzpatrick is based on renown treasure hunter Captain Carl Fismer. Carl is honored to be in such a fantastic book. Here is what the books forward says about Capt. Carl Fismer.
This book has much to do with finding shipwrecks, and there is no better resource than my friend Capt. Carl Fismer, a legend in a business that has many pretenders but few true pros. During his 40 year career, Capt. Fizz, as he is known, worked over 300 shipwrecks in Florida, the Bahamas, the Indian Ocean and Central and South America, and recovered millions in Spanish gold, silver, jewels and other artifacts. For years, he partnered with treasure historian Jack Haskins, and he was Mel Fisher’s choice to directed part of the salvage diving of the Santa Margarita, sister ship to the Atocha, so no surprise that he was awarded the Mel Fisher Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. Fizz provided valuable guidance as I researched this book, and also an authentic voice (I hope) to my fictional character, Capt. Carl Fitzpatrick. While the two men share many admirable qualities, I want to make it clear that Fizz cannot be faulted for Fitzpatrick’s negative qualities (if any) nor the fictional character’s choice of language or misstatements of fact. To learn more about Capt. Fismer, I highly recommend his book, Unchartered Waters: The Life and Times of Capt. Fizz. - Randy Wayne White

Wish we could have sooner, but I am very proud to have been friends with Mel, Art, Link, and Wagner and played a part in their lives. Dj
