    Which Deadliest Catch Captain would you work for?

    Which F/V would you work on?

    Could you work the grind to haul crab pots for 30 straight hrs?

    Is the money worth it?

    I would say the job is absolutely brutal, so I would go with the most consistent money maker; Sig Hansen on the Northwestern.

    Agreed or the Time Bandit, I think Jonathan is a pretty cool dude. Those would be my top 2 and only 2 choices.

    You couldn't pay me to do that job. I've seen Perfect Storm.

    The Time Bandit would be most fun.

    I would be dead or fired within about 2 hours. I don't care how much it paid, it's not worth it. Sig is my favorite though.

    I voted sig but the size of the Northwerstern would make it the safest ship of the fleet which would might make switch my vote.

    How much do they usually make divided by length of time at sea. I could see doing it a few weeks a year to make thousands.

    Crew members make something on the order of $10K per month on the successful boats.

    They often make $20,000-45,000 per season depending on which boat.
