10th Season, The Crab Boats are still the Stars! (where to see one)

The photo here of the late  Capt Phil with Mark  still brings to mind all the fun this show brings to it’s  Seattle connection.  A few years ago Mark was instrumental in having one of the original crab boats open for tours. The FV Sea Star with Capt Larry Hendricks  was the test in 2005 for a new show called Deadliest Catch.  he since has sold the boat and has moved on.

Season 10 is now on TV.  This week included a BIO- feature of the FV Northwestern (Capt Sig, Edgar and Norman).  The boat right now is moored at Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle on what is called the drivable dock (cars allowed) .  While crossing the Ballard Bridge you can see it looking West. If you choose to have a look be quick and courteous as this is a working area.   -Mark Christopher
