The Deadliest Catch ! This show on The Discovery Channel. The last episode was on tonight, I have watched the whole series. What a bunch of guys! What a job, I think that would be an awsome experience. It does have it's risks but what a pay day.$362 thousand for the vessel and Deck hands can make up-too $21 Grand in five days. Anyone know anybody that have worked on a Crab boat such as these?

When I worked on boats in the oilfield there were a few guys that had done that. Its as dangerous if not more so than what the Discovery show makes it out to be.
I've been knocked on my a$$ by heavy seas on deck in the Gulf but that cold water is a whole different game. Your life is measured in minutes even with a survival suit.
I enjoyed the show immensely as it accurately depicts life aboard a commercial boat.
Great show, but I don't think I could do that job. It looks cold out there.

Forget HOLLYWOOD, These Commercial boats and their crew should get awards!
They do!! They are awarded up to 21 Grand in five days!!!
My buddies son was on the show...That was his 5th & last year.
The show gave them all new gear to wear so they looked good
The producers had also hopped for much worse weather to film
Probably have seen every one.

21 grand in 5 days. I dont know if thats so great. after taxes its what? about 15 grand. thats not great considering you are working 24 hours a day for 5 days, risking your life and freezing your azz off.
Very cool show and yes it would be a good experience. Dont think I'de want to do that for a living. then again, theres not much you can do in Alaska to put food on the table. take what you can get. and be thankful, i guess
