HAVANA � NOVEMBER 4: Gregorio Fuentes, former captain on Ernest Hemingway�s fishing boat Pilar, at the age of 100, gestures as he sits in his living room under a painting showing himself and Hemingway, in the little fishermen village Cojimar, on November 4, 1997, in Havana, Cuba. Many say he was the inspiration for the protagonist in Hemingway's classic The Old Man and the Sea. Fuentes, born in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, on July 11, 1897, met Hemingway in 1928 and in the 1930s the writer hired him for USD 250 a month to care for his boat. Fuentes later inherited the Pilar but donated it to the Cuban government. The Pilar is now displayed in Hemingway�s former home, now a museum. Between 1939 and 1960, the American writer and journalist Ernst Hemingway lived for many years in Cuba. It was here where he wrote his novel The Old Man and the Sea, which earned him both the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize in Literature. (Photo by Sven Creutzmann/Mambo photo/Getty Images)
