FV Early Dawn.....Just Desserts
If you ask your regular viewer of the Deadliest Catch "Was there a boat on the show you ever hated?"
The answers would be "Yes", Followed by "The Early Dawn". From the "know-it-all" captain, who could not find the crab, to the Annoying-Lazy son of the ships owner who should have been fired for falling asleep on watch, to the fact that they pulled out before King Crab Season was even over with there was plenty to dislike. Many of us were asking "We lost the Maverick and the Farwest Leader for these fools?"
Many people might be pleased to know that the Early Dawn is docked in The Small Boat Harbor here in Dutch After King Crab season. It is also known as the "Ghetto Harbor", where alot of small transient houseboats are also docked. In addition it is THIRD from the dock, which I think is not the greatest spot as you have to cross two other boats to get to your ship.
Just to Bring back some fond memories enjoy the next two shots. Deadliest Catch Fans should love them. Both are still fishing from Dutch, and I for one Miss them!!!
