Hello, October 2nd. Our journey through Unalaga pass was uneventful. Rounding priest rock at about daybreak we reached Dutch Harbor with a full day of work ahead of us. We entered Captain's Bay and made for the Crowley dock. Norm, a good friend, allowed us to lay there and begin unloading the camera equipment for Original Productions because the dock at our cannery was short of space til after lunch. By early afternoon we fired up and were off to Westward Seafoods, leaving a huge pile of equipment on the dock to be dealt with by the local kids hired to haul it to the headquarters of the production team at the Grand Aluetian Hotel.
Westward is our primary seafood processor. We deliver the bulk of our crab there, but not all of it. We are one in a small group of crab boats that calls Westward home and over the years have become friends with the staff, which numbers well over a thousand when the plant is operating at full swing. Landing dockside the crew begins to load the 7'x8's which will take two long days, with some well deserved fun scheduled for late tonight. Capt. Monte.
