I had some friends who went to AK to work the boats, they only did salmon fishing though, said that was hard enough and that the crab guys were nuts.

I flip. Its between that and the golf channel.

Talk about 2 seriously divergent paths to make money!

A few weeks back I was flipping between The Deadliest Catch and Big Break III. On one channel, the boat captain is upset about a guy falling into the sea and dying. The second in the family to die while fishing.
On the other channel, a lady talking about immense stress associated with competing on that level and how strong she has to be to compete!

HMMM............ :noface:

24 hrs......no sleep, one of the most inhospitable places on earth. Possible death over the rail.
5 hrs........driving around a country club in a cart. Possibly not a beverage cart in sight

Depending on your view, Bosses cause headaches as well as get em.

You either work for "the man" or you are "the man" plenty of headaches to go around either way. :D

"The Man, oh, you don't know the Man. He's everywhere. In the White House... down the hall... Ms. Mullins, she's the Man. And the Man ruined the ozone, he's burning down the Amazon, and he kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank!"...............Dewey Finn, School of Rock..........

I somewhat watched the one last night, where the guy in the survival suit died.
the coast guard was hovering above, then changed camera angles, then back again to the ocean shot.......

did I hear correctly, the narrator said the Coast Guard Emergency Response team was Volunteer!?!?!?!?!?!?!?:eek3:


It was the episode where they told you about the E-PIRB

definition:
Emergency Position Indicating Radiobeacons (EPIRBs), devices which cost from $200 to about $1500, are designed to save your life if you get into trouble by alerting rescue authorities and indicating your location.

were they saying Coast Guard is volunteer, or were they saying that THOSE particular missions were volunteer???

but then again, I'm not positive I heard correctly:o

I didnt catch that statement but it might be true :confused: Major hats off to the Coast Guard guys and gals that do that. That is some seriously crazy flying weather. I have my P.P. license and some helo time and I can't imagine the white knuckles that flying in those conditions would cause!


Now I know why King Crab isn't $0.50 per pound!!!!

One of those boats was named: Capt Kidd. Daryl something you want to tell us about?

seems like they said that Helo was like 32 million dollars

now I wish I hadn't been so distracted when I was watching that episode:o

Yep that was right, 32 mil!!! That ride has some serious avionics on it. That was wild when they talked about the icing equipment not being able to keep up with the ice buildup. That had to have been scary. If you had to ditch that thing in the drink you might as well kiss your arse goodbye

I think he is referring to voulnteering for the duty, much like the men of easy company in Band of Brothers volunteered for airborne.

They are definetly paid for their work, but they are not forced to go on those rescues.

Coasties are bad arse!! I have had many beer with those guys. The rescue guys voluteer for thier rescue duty and they are very proud of it. As a military flyer myself I give props to those guys every time I see'em take the air. :toast:

Great show!!

the coastguards on this island are HEROES ..they are local tradesmen who give up their spare time for training, are on call 24hrs a day, whatever the weather...and lets face it ...how many times are they called out on a calm sunny day??
our government gives no money towards anything....its all on donations and charities from the general public who realise what an invaluable service they provide....
they do all this for no pay and hardly any recognition

they are the real heroes :worthy:
