To acquire the 48-foot Pamet, which was built in 1986, Capt. Fernando Lomba sold Ancora Praia. The captain’s home at 15 Jerome Smith Road is unmistakable, since he keeps fishing gear stowed in the front yard. So many houses in town once looked like his. Now, only a handful do. Presumably, Captain Lomba’s boat takes its name from the Pamet River, which bisects the Cape at Truro.
