Hello. Please bear with me as these posts are late at best. It is more than difficult to run this boat and get these posted in a timely manner......

Our first trip is behind us, it went well. The voyage out was calm and we made good time. The fishing was not red hot, but steady, with pots averaging 300-400 crab each. After three days of grinding we filled the port side tanks (200,000 lbs) before the weather went to hell. The wind blew 50-60 knots for about 22 hours, in which we got nothing done, but it was a needed break in the middle of the trip. Once the weather died down we were back at it for another 3 1/2 days and then we headed to Trident Seafoods, in Akutan, to deliver. Trident was happy with the crab and the offload was uneventful. Once we made it back to Dutch Harbor we busied ourselves preparing for the film crew to board. One full load down, three more to go.
