Northwestern Pictures from Yesterday, and The Billikin!!

So, to welcome Jennifer,Storm, Kat, Maskerade, ppatches60, kturbush,the newest Members of "Dirt" I took a trip out to the Trident Dock Yesterday to see Little Miss Northwestern.
No one is around, as there are not even footpints in the snow!
Kinda errie seeing the boat so quiet!
The NW asked me to post this as she is very proud of her 'Crown'.
ALL dark adn quiet in the Wheelhouse......
.....and the pots are just sitting waiting for Opies!!
And TRUE Deadliest Catch Fans will remember the Billikin from a previous season. Although I did not catch sight of their Giant of a captain!
Come back soon NW boys!!! She is really lonely and misses you guys!!! (I spent some time with her though, at least till she stopped crying)

Posts may be a bit sporatic this week everyone as all the people from Original Productions (The Deadliest Catch Producers) are getting in and I am running around like a nutcase!! The Boats are all scheduled to leave port on or by Jan. 14!!

Wish me Luck!!

I was going to yell and ask why you were not at school, till I realized the time Difference and figured you were already out for the day.

Dani said...

haha yea i finished school for the day. i got a question about school over there... until what age is it compulsory to go to school?

Carlisleboy said...

Supposed to be 18 though kids can drop out I think from 15 on with a parents OK. Idiotic!!!
Oh, And Junior says Hi! LOL!!!

Dani said...

thats probably better than here though, you can leave at 16...the last 2 years are optional and are mostly only done if you plan on going to uni. Well hi to junior too! Lol

Nice pics once again! Good to see the Billikin! I'm loving all of the shots of the F/Vs!

The next time NW gets crewsick just blow some smoke toward her, idealy toward the hydraulic controls and spill a little coffee on the deck. NO CREAMER PLEASE! It will make her feel better, familar smells and tastes you know.

Hi, ever since I followed a link to your blog, I've been checking every day to see what's new. I have no idea how to subscribe or sign up or whatever, but I'd like to. Thanks for keeping us DC fans updated on all the goings-on!

If you already have a Google/blogger account then all you have to do is hit the Floow this blog link over the "My Followers" post on the Right side of the screen.
Janice, That would be Willie, the Assistant Head Chef. He was quite flattered by your post....and he is single..........

Melly said...

CB thanks so much for the NW fix! She's looking very sexy (can a boat look sexy?) but definately lonely for "Big Daddy" and the boys...just a little longer. Tell little miss Northwestern if she needs a companion, to call me. I'll babysit for crab! lol ;-) Nice to see the Billikin too! I have to admit CB, I find myself checking in here quite a few times a day. :-) Good luck with the upcoming chaos!

Margrita said...

cher in Cal said...

Thanks for the pics, the NW is my second fav, the CM is number one for me. Gotta love that Edgar though, the little pyromaniac! Your job sounds fun, but I hope you don't have to work too hard. Enjoy!

Miss said...

Good luck this week! The pictures are great and the Northwestern looks really good!

Mystic said...

Hey...the Barbara J!!!!!!!! Greg Moncrief captains her during some of the summer fisheries! Nice to see her!
*waves*
Hey ya CB!

Jennifer said...

Thanks for the welcome CB! Love your comments on the new pic's of the NW! Your too funny ;) Keep it up, eagerly waiting more, as most of us are!

Kim said...

Thanks for going out to visit the NW CB. Im sure the boys appreciate it knowing they can check in on her through you. I really do like that boat. And yes a boat can be sexy!!! The NW proves it!

Kathy said...

Great pictures, as always, CB! Can't wait to hear any interesting tidbits you might be able to pick up from the DC crews. Thanks for the pics of the Billikin. Is Jeff Weekes still her captain? He does look like a mountain of a man!

Lori said...

Mornin' CB! Thanks for the NW pics and now attached to my desktop for the day. She does look lonely, so I'll keep her company. The island will be hoppin'- isn't it nice to be busy? Good luck and may the whole fleet have a safe and properous season! (Note to Dani - if you leave school prior to the age of 18 in the state of FL - we suspend your license; and CB is correct, 15 with parent's permission, 16 on your own)

ErieLady said...

Oh what beautiful pictures. Thank you so much. I agree, the NW looks very lonely without her master and crew. I sure that will all change very soon. No doubt the guys are getting real close to leaving.

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Great photos, CB! REALLY enjoy your blog! Keep 'em coming! And remember: in THIS economy, BUSY is GOOD and = keeping you employed and making money.

Maskerade said...

Thanks for the welcome. I loved the pics, and was really pleased to see the Billikin again. It was sweet of you to keep her company.

Hey, CB, it not a crown, it a "Crest" as Sig puts it.

TX Bandita Jamie said...

Let me know if you spot the Capt of the Billikan. I would be VERY interested in that tidbit of news :)
