Amazing how watching this show for so many years makes you like these guys are family. I really worry about their safety every year even though I'm thousands of miles away. Still remember, with sadness, the passing of captain Phil. Rip and God bless the fleet.

These men have my highest respect. I was a crab fisherman on the east coast for 4 years. I'm been in rough seas but compared to what they face it's a big difference. The ship I was on was 185ft and I admit I got scared a few times we were going to go down.ee fished deep sea red crabs from off coast of Massachusetts to as far south as off coast of Virginia. 14 day trips.

Most of them don't go out in rough seas. If things are over 30 feet, they jog, hide in a bay or go back to port until it blows out. A boat like the Northwestern isn't staying out a long time either. A couple of days to a week at the most.

The northwestern is a perfect example of why (I personally) think forward bridges are better than the usual design like on the wizard or time bandit because if a wave like that went over the bow of one of them they’d have a man overboard where as on the northwestern the crew is protected by the bridge

It doesn't really matter. A rogue wave will hit either of them equally because most hit broad side when they are hauling in gear. I've been on that ship as a ground fish observer and have gotten hit by them. When the captain or mate sees one coming (which they usually do), they holler and you grab ahold of something. It's not as big of a deal as people make it out to be. The only issue I had up there was working on long liners because I was in the pit in the side of the boat next to the gaffer. It's the only time I feared going over because waves would hit you regularly throughout the day. In the three years I worked up there, two guys went over. The first was an engineer who drank a whole bottle of jack daniels when they were tied up waiting to go and the second was a crew member being transferred between boats.

I know all to well, from my grandfather, and my dad, you can drink all you want back at the docks.Out on open water, miles from help, you need to be aware of your surroundings, and you don't need any distractions. Look at the weather they are dealing with, and out there it can change in seconds. No place to have to baby sit a drunk!!!

If you’re going in for repairs then you ought to inspect the rest of the hull too. Since northwestern was lengthened it could have hidden vulnerabilities. It’s been a good ship but it’s also been hit broadside in the past. Better safe than sorry. I’ve heard of other ships being modified and their fates didn’t turn out so well. Every ship will deteriorate over time even with top notch upkeep. Stay safe gentlemen.🙏✝️

@K Olsen I’ve seen some welders that claimed to work in some shipyards and I’ve seen some of their work. It gave me a new found appreciation for fiberglass hulls! I’m not trying to take a shot at shipyard welders, I’m just saying that these people claimed to have worked in the shipyards. I don’t remember them saying how long. That might be the reason they were looking for work elsewhere. But if bubblegum holds together better than your welds why even apply for a place that requires you to pass a nuclear procedure?

Lengthening by adding a section into the hull usually doesn't cause any problems. Its sponson jobs that are scary. I have seen some where the first 20 or so feet of the shell plate is just welded around the edges with no framing attaching it to the old hull because it is too narrow an area to get into. This is the area that takes all the pounding. Then weld a bulbous bow onto this poorly attached shell plate and you have a recipe for disaster.

The Northwestern always struck me as an odd design for a crabbing boat. Virtually every other ship in the DC fleet has its wheelhouse toward the aft, but Northwestern has it waaaaay forward. So I can see why Sig is so nervous about giant waves - if one comes up, it's hitting him in the face.

You crabbers really hang it all out there. I figured the North Western to be one of the strongest ships in the fleet. This damage even amazes me seeing how the bow was bent like tissue paper from that rogue wave. Sig you, your brother and the rest of the crew stay safe out there.

@Jon Butcher It's not the strongest part of the ship, I think most of these are double hull ships, the keel should be the strongest part. But there was corrosion under the paint, which means there could be corrosion on other parts of the ship and hidden weak spots.

I met the captain of the northwestern once. He was at a bar in a hotel in Nashville, people were bothering him and surrounding him. I was enjoying myself drinking and eating, then once people mostly had left him alone I walked by leaving and told him I'm recognized him but couldn't place it and hi. He stopped me and told me from where he shook my hand said nice to meet you. He was polite and great sweet spirit about him. And left it at that.

As they overfished the crabs and are now gone. No more making money crabbing free off the sea. This is when boats for some reason sink? Interesting?

Odds are that’s 100% APPLE JUICE ,the guy knows he’s on camera ! The reality show circuit really need to realize ONE thing and that’s we the audience are N O T stupid and we CAN and do spot this scripted crap each and every time !

The "thick" steel is not that thick. .125 or .187. I know Mike doesn't write the commentary, but it should be accurate.

"Thick" is relative, but a quick google of hull thickness of Alaskan Crab boats gave me an answer of "The hull is a seamless, dual skin design with an average hull thickness of up to 10mm for each skin i.e. each boat has on average hull thickness of at least up to 20mm." That's .250 to .500 or 1/4" - 1/2" per skin combined its almost an inch thick. If you are gonna be critical of the show at least spend 30 seconds making sure your BS is accurate.

I didn't see any cracks. The steel bent, it didn't crack. It's called "plastic deformation". It is when you exceed the yield strength but not the tensile strength. Boat's fine for the rest of the season.

I have never been a big fan of the show........... watched a couple of episodes......... appreciate the courage and the risk........... however, there are some things not worth risking your life over for money....... and this is one of them.........no way on earth would I ever consider stepping onto one of these ships in those waters.

I miss this show. I bought a 71 Mini Cooper with a Norwegian flag painted on the roof. One of these Captains was the previous owner. I can't for the life of me remember the name. Out the the PNW Seattle Washington area. Black, with striped interior. Any info would be cool.

@Thunder hawk I think there's a few Norwegians. I recognized the name when I first heard it. Of course it got lost in my brain somewhere. Thanks for the input.✌️

The timeline is off, they were going down wind, away from the waves, when laying the pots but to windward, into the waves, when the big one hit.

So did this ship get safely back into harbour? The video kinda just petered out.

They try so hard to manufacture drama, I'm surprised they get anything else done. LOL :)
