Michael ("Bugsy") Moran

Michael (

Michael Moran - a shipmate of Bobby Shatford - was from Florida.  Everyone called him "Bugsy," and everyone liked him:

...His real name is Michael.  He's got wild long hair and a crazy reputation and everyone in town loves him.  (Junger, The Perfect Storm, page 7.)

Bugsy, like the Captain - Billy Tyne - drove to Gloucester from Florida to crew on the Andrea Gail:

The Andrea Gail is one of the biggest moneymakers in Gloucester harbor, and Billy Tyne and Bugsy Morgan have driven all the way from Florida to grab sites onboard.  (The Perfect Storm, page 30.)
