27 Colorado, 3rd year fishing in Alaska, 1st on crab boat.
Hard Physical labor, great pay.
You really got to know somebody, but I’ve used Job boards like trawlerjobs.com and beat the docks as well.
Work hard, be able to take orders, be able to be outside in harsh conditions, respectful.
Years of hard work and learning everything about the boat you are on.
Yes you can stretch one season (3 months) pay for a while year. Sports gamble sometimes or help our buddies out who own small businesses.
Wake up at 7 am. Cook breakfast for the entire 6 man crew. On deck at 8:30am until midnight with a lunch, dinner, and 2 smalls breaks in between.
The pay and the feeling of working extremely hard. Worst part being frozen all the time and not being able to feel your hands.
I don’t have much family but it’s fine for me. See them when I can.
That we are going to fall overboard or the boat is going to sink which is highly unlikely but does happen rarely.
