DiMillo's Floating Restaurant

Long before Commercial Street meant Standard Baking Co., Bubble Maineia, or Gaucho's, there was a man named David "The Dogman" Koplow, who fed his wild dogs raw fish as they roamed the stinking, falling down waterfront. It was 1978 and DiMillo's was about to be born:
By sea, we moved in the Hercules, a 60-foot, wooden, self-propelled barge with a Bucyrus Erie crane atop her deck, and the Seboomock, a small 32-foot powerful tugboat that had done her previous work on northern Maine lakes; a couple of skiffs with outboards completed the armada, via Working Waterfront.
