The Deadliest Catch
Posted 02 May 2005 - 03:41 PM
My dad was a longshoreman turned crab trawler in his 20's- so I wanted to see what the gig was all about. As it turns out, King Crab trawling is the most dangerous job on the planet (get it- Deadliest Catch--? Huh? Witty, right? )
Anywho, the show chronicles a fleet of ships as they work through the crab season. The ups, the downs, and all the highlights they can cram in between.
My favorite part of the show was when the crew of Fierce Allegiance was showing what they do for fun on the deck. When the boat hits a wave crest, they'd jump- launching them 3-4 feet in the air. As the boat slides down to the wave trough, it causes them to hang in-air. Looks like fun.

That wave-jumping sounds like the sh*t. I would like to try that too. Did your dad to it when he was working on the ships?
