Hooper, not to derail this thread, but if you're dreaming about the Nordhaven's, got to be the most beautiful and functional Trawler.

You have to follow Ken's blog, there will be 2 other Nordhavens running with him.

He did an Atlantic crossing with 30 other Nordhavens few years back.
I met him on a Mexico run, he went as far as Costa Rica at that time.

**SPOILER ALERT**

Too bad about Phil - hopefully they get the rest of the clot and bring him back some time during the season - not sure about his replacement!

Did you guys catch Keith on the Wizard saying he dumped 400K into the boat? And his wife calls him sayin "honey, we're broke"? That should turn a light bulb on for you guys wanting a bigger boat.

I like when Keith on the Wizzard dove on his boat mid-ocean to try and figure out what was chaffing the pot line. That takes some serious b@!!s , but I guess that is what you have to do when you are broke. The gobbs of money they take in and pay out seem outragous.

Yeah, too bad about Phil. His boys seemed excited he was back in the chair.

His replacement is his top man - Murray. That guy can do it all. Did you see the one where he climbed the boom mast in major sloppy,icy conditions to replace the broken connector? Plus he's fixed about every part on the ship. But can he catch the crab? We'll find out....

The hillstrand/time bandit crew is my favorite.
Sig and the Northwestern crew second.

I just plain feel sorry for Keith and the Wizard crew. That dude is a walking bomb waiting to explode. I hope he gets a new look on things after his recent diagnosis.

I think Keith has the toughest time making it becaue he has to purchase so much of his quota. I think the Northwestern had good years before the end of the Dreby style fishing thus has to purchase less of their quota.

Phil needs to throw away the cigarettes if he wants to stop the blood clots! He is his own worst enemy smoking 4 to 5 packs per day. I sincerely hope he can get over these health problems but step one is to stop smoking.

I cant believe he is stupid enough to continue to smoke. Notice how he stopped right away when he was scarred sh1tless and then a few months later right back at it. People who cant quit are weak.

NorthWestern is the best boat IMO

Have you been a smoker for 30+ years? Don't call someone weak when you have no idea what your talking about.

And no, I have never smoked a single cig in my life.

Actually I dipped Copenhagen 2 cans a day for 20 years and quit cold turkey and never looked back so, I do know what it takes. It takes discipline and a strong will. And dont try to say smoking is harder because any doctor who knows his stuff will tell you dipping is just as if not harder to quit. So, I do know what I am talking about, it was all I thought about every 30 seconds for a month and then every hour or less for around 6 months. Even today 3 or so years later I still get a craving here and there.

Ask Keith on the Wizzard.

LOL.. I know, it's horrible stuff.. I used it for a few years and my dentist noticed receeding gum lines asked if I'd been chewing tobacco , I shamfully fessed up.. I quit a few years ago but gum tissue doesn't grow back. At least I quit before cancer reared it's head ( I hope )

Anyone see in the previews? They keep alluding to one of these guys running into some real crap out there and needing to be rescued. Looking like the Wizard.

Maybe they are just teasing the heck out of the next episode, but for sure this year. A boat goes down. I dont know if its one of the shows boats, but the have the rescue on tape.
