Hibernation

by Tia (Deckhand) on January 26th, 2013

It's January. In the weeks since solstice, we've slowly been gaining light. It's 8:33 am and I'm beginning to see signs of a sunrise on the horizon.  The boat has been out of the water for a couple months, wrapped tight as to keep the snow out.

The winter season isn't void of work and projects, however. Captain Wes has reworked the hydraulics on the boat and installed a system which will vent the heat from the engine into the wheelhouse so we no longer have to burn stove oil constantly. He's working out the kinks; this will be the third season fishing from this boat and improvements will certainly make operations run more smoothly. The second engine was replaced and we will have a chance to break it in when the boat is back in the water. I foresee a fun halibut fishing trip on a nice crisp day in March in my future! 
I've been working on another website, www.fvnightsedge.com, which will function more as a fan page once the show "Alaska Fish Wars" has aired on Nat Geo Wild. We hope the show will get picked up for another season and I guess I'm just planning ahead!

The first episode airs February 8th and we are all getting a little excited and nervous to see it. There is a clip of the show below which features the F/V Night's Edge.

We hope you'll tune in.

In the months until fishing season, we will continue to work on our direct marketing and spend time getting the boat ready for the best season yet.
Video wouldn't embed so here's the link to Nat Geo Wild:
