    I'm extremely suprised Sig didn't notice the boat wasn't moving through the waves like it should. Maybe there were on a long 'grind' and the mind wonders and they weren't as alert as they could have been? Anyway, great save by Edgar.

    I'm suprised the crew on the RR hasn't left yet. Elliott needs to understand that once you leave dock you leave that life behind while you are fishing. He's preoccupied most of the time and doesn't appear alert as he should be while being captain of the RR.

    Mouse was right. Keith was a dummy for dropping pots in an area with so much ice. At least they only lost 10% of their gear. Which leads me to think, since that pot will stay on the bottom forever and it is probably full of crab. The crab will die and then once they decompose, do more crab enter and so on and so on. The decomposing crab could be food so it just keeps going and going like the energizer bunny. ;)

    Sorry Captain Johnathan but you don't fire a shotgun over the heads of your crew.

    :confused: The show I watched clearly showed Sig thinking there was something wrong as well.

    Crap like that is the reason I never liked him.

    Elliott did his part of the court hearing by phone. They obviously have satellite phones on the boats, Elliott was using one to harass his ex, so he could have simply kept fishing and used that phone rather than going into port. The crew should have revolted and the boat owner should have fired him on the spot.

    I like how Elliot keeps saying "I can't see my kids for a year" but the judge specifically says no contact EXCEPT with regards to kids so it sounds like to me that he can see them but chooses not to.

    Yes but it was after Edgar came up and said there was something wrong. I sort of think it was going on for awhile and meant to say Sig should have noticed it first. Then again maybe he did but it wasn't shown. :)

    You must have watched a different episode /shrug

    Sig called Edgar to the wheelhouse and then they compared information.

    I know he said it a million times before the judgement, but I didn't think he said it after and even told the crew in the galley that he could contact them.

    It seemed (or they made it seem) to me like they both noticed it independently. Edgar noticed it on deck, and Sig was saying the boat wasn't running through the waves normally. When Edgar came into the wheelhouse, Sig showed him a gauge that didn't look right to him. Then Edgar went down to check the pumps and then the tank.

    I guess I'm referring to an ATC episode (last week's) where he said he hadn't seen or talked to his kids in over 6 months.

    Ahh, gotcha. I guess I don't want to waste any extra brain cells remembering what Elliott says. LOL

    I'm thinking "egg". Too many cases not to be relevant, and some of the couples have said they didn't think they'd be divorced if it hadn't been for the show pushing then over the edge (Danny Partridge and Hulk Hogan both said so). I think being on TV exacerbates people's problems in relationships and once that happens they have the entire Internet blowing smoke up their butts telling them to leave etc. In Elliot's case, I actually don't know if the show hurt him as much as he hurt himself. He doesn't know how to treat people. Neither his crew or his ex.

    That's actually a very real problem with all crab and lobster fishing, actually. Not just in the Bering sea, but everywhere crab and lobster fishing happens.

    I don't know if they came up with a workable solution to that - it is considered a very serious ecological problem.

    What's with CM Jake? Is he really that deluded? He's acting like he should be captain but has absolutely no work ethic at all. He regards his time on the NW as a complete waste instead of a huge learning opportunity in boat operations (nevermind the money). Just because he's a Harris makes his position in the wheelhouse automatic?

    On Wild Justice, they mentioned that crab pots in California have to tied closed with a string or rope that decomposes slowly in salt water. The string dissolves and the door is opened for crabs to exit.

    Not sure if it's the same in the Bering Sea.

    I haven't watched Deadliest Catch in years but I still enjoying reading the threads. That being said, I have a question...

    Jake couldn't actually go out as a captain, right? Even if he found someone insane enough to finance it and a crew stupid enough to set foot on the boat, could he legally do it?

    I've never thought cm jake was worth very much, he has always displayed only that he was a spoiled kid.

    Switched the names. Sorry it was JOSH not Jake on ATC. Elliot mentioned from his experience that getting insurance would be the hardest part and he has alot more years on a crab boat than Josh and probably has some certifications as well.

    He, Josh didn't actually say it was the CM he was getting up to speed so it might be another boat altogether. So besides a boat he has to get a crew, quota, insurance, financing and someone who could be a second captain/engineer like an Edgar since he won't know what he's doing half the time.

    Wandered into Fred Meyer and Keith was doing an autograph signing. Got his and talked to him for about 5 minutes about the ice and he mentioned when ever he wears his "ragged salmon cap that he is in some real ****". He also mentioned that it took 7 hours to get the wizard out of dock when the ice was there. Nice guy at least meeting him.

    You should have said Hi SIG, how are you doing? and waited to see what he would say. LOL.

    I imagine all of the Captains are nice but once you put them in a stressful situation where their 1 million+ dollar boat is at risk, civility is out the window.

    My cousin is vacationing up in Alaska. She stopped by the bar where the captains hang out and had a shot of Duck Fart. No sightings though.
