I never had the privilege of meeting Capt. Julian Fernandez, but I heard many a story that attested to the captain's character. Character that I suspect helped immensely in growing the Biscayne Bay Pilots Association. I did have the privilege of working as a boatman for the Biscayne Bay Pilots with his nephew, Captain John Fernandez, who is extremely professional, unflappable, and always a pleasure to work with. My sincerest condolences go out to the family of Captain Julian Fernandez.
