After the Northwestern and Cornelia Marie changed deckhands, the plan to get them back to their own boats was to tie both Jake Anderson and Jake Harris to buoys. Jake Harris's transfer went smoothly while Jake Anderson's rescue had complications due to ocean currents and the boat pitching. It is revealed in this episode that Northwestern deckhand Nick Mavar skippered a salmon tendering boat over the summer and lost a man which was the reason why he was so upset over how the events of his nephew Jake Anderson's rescue from the ocean went down.
Goof: While the episode states that it was the final 24 hours of the Opilio season, but that isn't so. The Icy Mist got grounded on the island on February 25, 2009, so in fact the Opilio season while well on the way. However, it may have been the final 24 hours for the Four Vessel fleet the show revolves around.
The story of the St. Christopher seems to be based on the real life story of the St. Patrick. All 11 hands abandoned the ship, but she righted herself after abandoned and was later found afloat and remained so for a time. She was towed to port and sank while moored there. There were two survivors, one of them a greenhorn.
Goof: In the crab count there are two errors, the One, Time Bandit's crab count is above the the Cornelia Marie despite the fact that there only caught 340,000 pounds of crab while the the Cornelia Marie's count is 360,000. The Cornelia Marie's count should of been about the Time Bandit's count. Also with the Incentive's crab count is 355,000 is above the Northwestern's crab count is 430,000. The Northwestern's crab count should of been above the Incentive's.
Goof:During the intro to this boat, Mike Rowe, mistakenly refers to the Incentive as 100ft long, in fact she is 106ft long.
There appears to several discrepancies in this episode. One:The narrator said they were 40 days into the season, but John Hillstrand said "That they were a week in and "stuffed the boat in one day." Two: Last episode the Northwestern's offload day was Thursday and now Sig states that it was Sunday.
In the tribute at the end of the episode there was an error,Carlos Martin Zabala was listed as from Helena, WA, actually he was from Helena, Montana.
Editing Goof: In the montage of footage that showed all of the Coast Guard assets coming on-line. While the Coast Guard Cutter, Acushnet, was involved with locating the crew of the Katmai, the cutter that they showed was the Alex Haley,
Goof: When Mike Rowe is refering that the Time Bandit is head back to Dutch Harbor to offload, the RADAR map has to arrow that is representing the Time Bandit pointing in the wrong direction. It was point upward, it should of been pointed downward. In the UK version (aired 20 May 2008) the narrator (Bill Petrie) said the Time Bandit was heading to St. Paul Island to offload - making the radar graphic correct.
Factal Error: When Mike Rowe says "The Bering Sea gives up her bounty" in reguards to the Early Dawn reeling in huge numbers of Brown King crab is wrong. Brown King crabs are caught on the southwest side of the Aleutian Chain off the coast of Alaska which is consided the North Pacific Ocean and not the Bering Sea.
Editing Goof:In the pan-out of the exterior of the bar man and kid in the shot are walking backward.
