The Great Siberian Sushi Run Left Dutch Harbor/Unalaska yesterday.http://nordhavns68.talkspot.com/aspx/blob2/blobpage.aspx/msgid/463430
I was lucky enough to spend some time with them as they toured our little town over the past week. Wonderful people, just great!!! It was a pleasure to have them here and to take them out on a hike or two while they were here.
There is a group shot of Some of the crews as they Joined CB, JS and AU on a hike around Bunker Hill. (I was standing up on that lion shaped rock face on the Beach)
JS and AU out on the Spit Dock with me.
So Last night on "After the Catch" the possibility of a Crew member trade for one trip was discussed. WHO would CB choose as his "Dream Team"?
Captain: Keith on the Wizard. I think he is the most disciplined, yet caring captain on the show.
And he ALWAYS has one of the biggest Quotas. $$$$$ He knows the ins and outs of the fishing quota system and Fights for the Rights of all fishermen at the meetings.
Relief Captain/Engineer: Monte/Mouse. Because Keith and Monte work well together.
For Crew: Travis From the Wizard, The Guy Cracks me up!!!
Matt From the Northwestern: Good and Solid Deckhand, and a nice guy even if he does eat his burger funny!!
Of COURSE Crosby and Lynn from the Wizard! Nice guys and workhorses!!
Jake From the Northwestern With Freddie from the Cornelia Marie. Both Really great guys, and in Freddies Case a Good Friend. (Miss you and Vanessa!! Enjoy Las Vegas!!)
And Finally, just because it will make Kim, Frieda and the rest happy Edgar as Deckboss, Although Freddie could also do a great job at this.
Before I moved up here and got to know them I would have chosen a totally different crew, but being here has changed alot of the views I once had.
Now which boat would I take?
As cool looking as she is, Love the Color scheme, The CM just has too many mechanical issues.
And the Time Bandit just does not have a big enough quota to pay all these guys what they deserve.
That Leaves the Wizard and the Northwestern. Both good boats in good repair, but I am going to have to go with the Wizard. After being on both of them I just like the "feel" of the Wizard more as it is traveling through the ocean. Plus if that Wave that almost took out all my friends on the Wizard would have hit the Northwestern, Sig would have been blasted out his "shouty door" and on to the deck, or right out to sea.
SO, Instead of telling me who I should have picked make up your own list and tell me:
WHO IS YOUR "DREAM TEAM?!!!
