there is no make or break season any longer due to time restraint, its more of a hit or miss the crab will break your season,, no more free-for-all, there used to be like 250 boats now there is like 90, the ones that are left have quotas to fill,, thats it and their done.. makes their lives a lot easier and a bit less deadly.. still some crazy stuff...

Your boat goes down and your bobbing around in 40 degree water ..your praying to see that orange helicopter ..no?
Those who would sacrifice a little bit of freedom for a little more security deserve neither. It was a bull$hit, unecessary intrusion that could have been accomplished enroute to/from port. The CG is tasked with search and rescue, it's their job, they voluteer for it. Some newby officer just had a hard on to get on the Discovery Channel.

You have a good point, however commercial fishers are in their workplace and the CG are tasked to make sure that they are working safely with safe equipment.

That's a bit of a different situation. I'm guessing that the CG have been told to make their presence more obvious because of the show and tragic loss of Big Valley

The CG let them keep working which I think was very reasonable. Also with the new rules, each boat is given a quota so its not an all out run like last year.

This is the same boat that had to bring the rookie back... figures, they burn probably $8K in fuel and lost time and then they get hit by a 6 story building.... time to get the rookie back and kick some azzzz! if they make it... we'll see next week.
