With How our little group has Grown I have had to take over the ENTIRE bottom section of the Chart Room so we can all get those coveted Window Seats!
NOW you can go to the dessert table. You may notice that another of my pineapple Upside down cakes and one of my chocolate cakes is also making an apperance. Kim, You are not allowed to eat ALL of the cheesecakes today!!! Remember last Sunday? No? Really? That would have been the SUGAR COMA!!!
Time Bandit:These Shots are of the New Improved Time Bandit from back in October. They did a huge overall of the boat in the off-season, giving them more speed, more cargo hold. rebuilds of the crane and launcher, and *Spoiler Alert* they added a HOT TUB to the deck!!!
Cornelia Marie: I think it is an "Open Secret" That Captain Phil did NOT captain the boat for Red King Crab. We all hope, and the plan still is, that he will be back for Opies. I Have a Suite at the Grand Aleutan just waiting for you Phil!! (Hopefully security can keep the ladies away) Dave Milman is off the Boat and a new Deckhand Corey is in. And Plan to see more of Freddy and his wife on this blog as they live in Dutch, and they are both AWESOME people.
Northwestern: The NW was drydocked for most of the offseason for a $750,000.00 overhaul. There is some tension brewing between the Hansen Clan and the non-Hansens on the boat. And *SPOILER ALERT* there is an interview out there that Mat thad a "Slip" In his recovery from addiction issues over the summer before king Crab season Began. Personally I hope that this slip is his last and know that he is strong enough to oversome this. Also There is talk of Matt and Jake leaving the NW for other fisheries. Nice to see the two of them getting along so well this year after last year's "Trouble" (Note to all I have edited this post to clear up some unintentionally vague language that some people thought implied that Matt's "Slip Up" was more recent. I apologize to any Northwestern Fans that took it that way, and will make sure I am more precise in the future)
The Wizard: Keith put over $400,000.00 into the boat in the offseason to fix the damage we all saw last season. Still it is one of the toughest boats out there, and they got their quota in early which proves them as one of the best boats in the fleet. The new green horns Cooper and Lynn did not make it for King Season this year but hopefully they will be back in opies. In the meantime a new Greenhorn for the Wizard is Josh Warner. *Spoiler Alert* Did everyone know that sweet Lenny Does not like Cameramen?
