    No Cornielia Maria on last night's episode. Strange.

    Seems like most people are having a tough season this year.

    I noticed that, too (no CM). Wonder why they weren't shown at all?

    Also no coverage of the other boat fishing for blues (Desert Rose?) was there?

    What was with Jake going off on Edgar. Talk about blowing a gasket over nothing.

    Just immaturity. He was already beating himself up over the bad string and then Edgar started needling him. I thought it was funny when he was saying "we all hate you" and the rest of the crew just had their head down and were working.

    I have a feeling Edgar has been giving Jake a bit of a hard time since Jake made it clear that he's bucking for Captain. I personally think at his level of experience, that was a stupid thing to broadcast to everyone on the ship. It can come off as awfully cocky to the wrong person. Jealousy is also a factor. Some of these guys have been working the rail for years. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great he took the classes, but he should have kept it between him and Sig. ;)

    I think it's great that Jake has ambitions beyond working the rail, but he goes about things the wrong way. Just like most kids today (yes, I'm getting old) he thinks he can demand respect. But respect has to be earned, and he's yet to learn that. Maybe it's just the edit Jake gets, but I think he's still very immature, and frankly I'm surprised at how well Sig and Edgar treat him.

    He needs to learn some respect himself. That comment "how many times have you left your Brother at the Dock?!?" nearly got him decked. I have no idea what that meant, but Edgar sure didn't like it. I think if the cameras hadn't been on Edgar would have punched him 4 or 5 times in the face. :D

    When he got up to see Sig, he suddenly had nothing to say. He knew he was being an idiot. And yes, that whole deal was immaturity and jealousy and the fact that his string didn't do well. He was upset with himself but everyone else was taking it in stride. How many bad strings does Sig have? How many each SEASON, let alone ever. He is a good crab boat captain because he doesn't make a habit of it. If he did, his boat wouldn't be able to attract a decent crew. But you can't be a crab boat captain and expect every string to be a winner.

    Jake is jealous because he feels Edgar and Sig got everything handed to them and he has to work for everything. That's true but those are the breaks. He's got ambition and that's great. Edgar doesn't seem to have any. So maybe Jake will one day be captain of the Norwestern. He will definately be captain of something. Right now he's still very young.

    Not seeing the Cornelia Marie at all this episode wasn't a surprised - we went 3 episodes before seeing the Kodiak this season!

    The opening of the episode with the Northwestern losing power was INTENSE.

    Hoping the cliffhanger with the deckhand asleep at the wheel of the Wizard pays off.

    Yeah, the Northwestern looked to be moving pretty quickly with no power. That would be scary!

    I guess that night vision camera is stationary and unmanned so there's no camera man to wake him up...:eek:

    That must be pretty embarrassing that the viewing public will see him putting everybody on the boat in jeopardy.

    Is a "dead man alarm" something that just goes off every X minutes and you have to turn it off so it keeps you awake? If so, shouldn't it be harder to permanently turn off or have to be turned off at a totally seperate location? That's like putting the snooze button next to the Off button! ;)

    Some systems have an alarm in the captains quarters if it's manually bypassed w/o a key. Guessing these old crab boats are pretty simple as far as that goes although some of them seem to have pretty sophisticated nav setups.

    It just seems to make logical sense to put the "button" and the "off switch" in two totally different locations to keep the person you're trying to keep awake from just turning it off. For example....the "off switch" could be in the captains quarters or in the engine room.

    Wow...so not only did the boys on the CM give up on Blue Crab but they gave up on Red Crab even before they started? Cpt Phil would not be happy!

    I think it would be okay to have it on one place as long as you can't turn it off w/o a key or bypass code. Then it would be up to the captain to keep the code to himself or leave the key elsewhere on the ship. It looks like Capt Keith found out in time anyway. Wonder if he was awakened by an alarm in his quarters or did I miss that scene.

    It didn't sound like they gave up on red crab, per se. They just knew they weren't about to be going out for another trip under the current captain, and probably wouldn't have time or ability to find another captain quickly enough.

    I wondered the same thing. How did the Captain KNOW? My gut feel is that Captains don't really sleep very soundly when someone else is on watch. The bucking and uncharacteristic rolling of the Boat probably woke him out of a light sleep.

    The kid wasn't steering the boat, just on watch looking out for other hazards and obstacles. Although I can't say for sure, I'm confident the boat was on autopilot and he just keeps his eye on the radar and as far in front of them as he can. I doubt there was any "uncharacteristic rolling" that would wake even the best captain out of a sleep. Everything feels different below the wheelhouse.

    Unless they're in very heavy seas and the boat is at risk, or they're coming up on a pot string, I'm pretty sure the boat is steered by gps to a destination.
