  • Overall all right ending for Red Crab season.....

    Wow it was mutiny on the Dawn, that was harsh for sure. I didn't feel right about it and really felt pitty for the skipper and then seeing the crew laughing wow that is all I can say. I wonder just wonder if it was a little pay back or not by the owners son for attempting to get him fired, it was only a thought I doubt he really did it for that reason.

    And my lovely NW, poor Edger getting hit by the hook. Ouch, darn that had to hurt but he got up and kept going. And poor Jake felt so bad. But after all their hard hard work the NW still rocked into second place and brought home a awesome catch!

    TimeBandit, sweet to see that John's son comes back to help and the time him and John had. But Andy getting called away for family again, didn't that happen last season too that brother Andy got called off ship. Anyway TimeBandit takes home the Capt.'s bet with average of 75 crab string. And the whole deication to John and Andy's dad at the end was nice.

    Hey the hailmary worked for the NorthAmerican so I guess we get to see them again.
