I watch it on occasion. Reminds me of my two years patrolling the Bering Sea and boarding the crab boats and long liners.

 bigthumbsup  Yes its quite good. Although I havn't watched the new series on Discovery Channel yet as it's half way through the series.

Whilst watching it, I often wondered, would I made a good deckhand? Could I survive the freezing wet temperatures? Could I survive the 20 hour days? I would love to give it a go.

I absolutely love that show. Some of the recent ones have been especially great. Mike Rowe is a great narrator, and the entire thing is very interesting. Of course, I'd hate to have that job. I have a couple of friends who have done the job at one time or other...they loved the pay and the people, but all of them said that it's exhausting.

I have watched most episodes of this series. It is indeed something different, about what is one of the most dangerous jobs anybody can do. They show a cross section of very good people and occasionally real jerks, just like real life is. You tend to root for most of the ships shown as you want them to do well as their income is based on their take from the sea. Showing how important our USCG is for those on those ships, daring tough weather, is a good bonus in this series. It also makes the point as to why your fish, especially crab, is so expensive.

In Season II Sig took shelter behind Amak Island, that was clearly visible from CDB. Only a couple of miles offshore.

Season three they lauched the HH-60 out of Cold Bay which I still consider the town I grew up in. They fly out of the Evergreen hanger which was the MarkAir hanger when I was out there.

What those guys on the crab boats and small (less than 100') wet well longliners put up with is simply amazing. And even the factory fishing boats, you couldn't pay me to work on those things. Seeing the slime line in operation at sea is NOT a pretty sight. Or a particularly nice smelling one.

There were times in the Bering Sea where the conditions were so violent on our ship (230', 2000 tons) that we didn't just rig lifelines topside - we made it off limits. After one memorable night, we woke up to find that all of our life rafts were gone. They were mounted on the O2 deck, yet we took so much green water that the hydrostatic releases all were triggered, and off they went, probably washing up on shore somewhere thousands of miles away.

The longest time I have heard of somebody surviving out there in the water was the kid of the bar manager out at CDB. He was also a fueler at the airport and took a skiff out with the accountant, and they flipped it. They never found the accountant but managers kid spent something like 12 hours in the water. What they figure saved him was that he was wearing a pair of those stretchy neoprene chest waders and they acted like a wetsuit. Sill I understand that he lost something like 20lbs that night. When I was out there there where a couple of people who insisted on wearing neoprene waders when out of the water because of the incident.

Normally you don't want to wear waders of any kind at all on a boat because they will fill up with water and pull you down if you go over.

About the king crab finale, I couldn't believe the amount the Cornelia Marie lost due to their prop trouble. Top of the season with 400,000 lbs of crab caught, something like 30,000 lbs more than the second place Wizard, but only earning around $700,000! The Wizard earned about $1.4 million and the Northwestern earned $1.3 million on about 337,000 lbs.

I would guess the answer is no, as his crew and himself are out of SEA. IE yeah, they are giving some money to AK by offloading, but they dont have a choice about that, plus once they are paid, the money goes south with them. I don't see anything dispicable about it given the fact he obviously laid down a LARGE chunk of change to buy the licenses to fish there, but Maybe 188 is more agitated about the raping of the Cod he did last season.

You probaly met Keith Colburn and Andy or Jon Hillstrand

Wouldn't doubt it, those boats cost a lot and can't be sitting around, so in the summer a lot of them work as tenders for the salmon boats. They also get tasked out to make runs for the cannery. In my case I would usually see them if the King Cove Airport was weathered in and the cannery had a load of milt or roe to fly out. They would have the crabber make the run with the material on deck.

:serious question: does the fact that he offloads in Alaska make a difference?

I'll give him more credit for his family history.

You have to understand that Seattle based fishing interests have a long history of exploiting Alaska. They where one of the big reasons why Alaska went for statehood.

Yeah, I read those things

If you look at season 1 you can see the thank you credit for FS Air for flying them out....that was my outfit before they went under.

Yeah you got to have the right last name to get on most boats, including that one.

Most people fishing are family members or friends. I just wonder how much a skipper makes. Keith Colburn bought the Wizard and nearly went down in his 1st season of ownership but seems to be doing well now. Sig makes a fortune as a Captain and most of them do.
