Premier next Week TUESDAY 9 PM new season.

http://www.ismyshowcancelled.com/article/2011-04-14/deadliest-catch-renewed -for-season-8/

http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/deadliest-catch-season-7-episode-16-videos/

With Josh and Jake $300,000 in the hole at the end of last season, (Josh and Jake owned 12.5% of the boat - the cost for 70% lease of the boat is $362,000 per the "Boat Owner Perils" video

http://www.oregonlive.com/movies/index.ssf/2011/05/deadliest_catch_captain_ derric.html

They did not make the money needed to take the boat out for Season 8. During Season 7, The Captain they hired, after Phil's passing, Derrick Ray, did not find the crabs, tried to have Jake arrested, and the boys fired him.

From Interview with Derrick Ray:

"Q: At one point early this season you got mad at Jake and Steve for being away too long and you yelled, "Phil's not here, he's [bleeping] dead, OK?" when the boys were in earshot. Do you regret saying that?

A: No, I don't regret that at all. The cameras were there and that's how I felt at the time. Maybe it came across a little heavy handed but so what? I'm captain of the boat. There ain't no cryin' in crabbin'. It's a job. It's a dangerous job, but the job is no harder than most people who've got to get up everyday. I don't think I'm super-human. A lot of people work a hell of a lot harder than we do. We get a lot of time off the ocean.

The problem is, a lot of guys go out there and do the job and get the perception that they're bigger than life and they're not. You're crab fishermen. One of my favorite saying is "We're all hired for from the neck down; the only thing your head is for is to hold up your [bleeping] raincoat." Just do your job, that's all it's about.

Q: Do you regret any of your actions toward the boys or the crew?

A: Absolutely not. I was trying to teach them, and they didn't want to listen. They were trying to make TV. They wanted to twist it their way. Whenever it's convenient for them, they pull out their "Poor, Pitiful Pearl" card and that ... don't fly with me. "My dad died, look at me, it's so tough."

The problem is they believe the editing. In their minds, Phil was a crab fisherman, a legend in the Bering Sea who will never be replaced. But he was really just an above-average fisherman in the Bering Sea. There are no legends out here, just guys who went and did their jobs. Some did it better than others. Real legends are firemen who rush into burning buildings. Legends are young men and women we send overseas to get shot, not crab fishermen. "

Comments: Derrick was not the right Captain for this boat with the situation/circumstances that were present (the boys grieving their Father's loss, trying to go out on the sea before their grieving was completed). The other Captains in the fleet all loved Phil Harris and respected him and felt he was legendary, but Derrick did not think a fisherman is a legendary endeavor.

I could not believe he actually told them "everybody has a parent who died, get over it". He could have followed Capt. Phil's charts for the fishing grounds he went to, yet he did not take any blame for failing to find the crabs. The last straw was calling the cops when he found pot paraphenalia on the boat, accused Jake, called the cops before they got back to Dutch Harbor to try to have him arrested when they docked. That was not the way to handle it. He should have left it up to Josh how the situation with Jake would be resolved.

They are saying "Josh joined the Time Bandit crew while Jake suited up on the Northwestern. " Sig is mentoring Jake Harris after Edgar (his own son) said he was not coming back. This should be very interesting. Jake needs structure, understanding, hope in the future and belief in himself, but he's still got to pay the Bering Sea dues.

A Captain who has put in 20 years on that water has seen enough to have the competence to run a boat in those waters, anyone else might not be able to react with the skill and intuition that will save the lives of the crew members and the boat in a rogue wave. Josh worked on a commercial fishing cannery boat, and they do go 500 miles off shore and encounter 40 foot high waves that come over the boat, Jake has not seen that yet. It's good for them to get experience on other boats before trying to run their own.

P.S. Think you could do what they do? There are some job openings listed on the right sidebar of this site:

http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/deadliestcatch/boats/

http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/deadliestcatch/hsw-crab-boat-greenhorn.ht ml

Job Description:
The greenhorn is responsible for all grunt work on the crab boat. This includes keeping the boat clean and knocking the ice off the boat rails with a sledgehammer. The greenhorn also prepares bait, which entails cutting up thousands of pounds of fish and manually attaching it to crab pots. All this is performed in bitter cold temperatures and 60-mph winds, on icy decks. Although the working day isn't long (only five hours of sunlight available in these northern locations), the working night is. The greenhorn must pay for required fishing equipment and a fishing license out of his or her own pocket. Most importantly, this candidate must prove his or her worth by earning the trust of superiors in order to advance to higher ranks.

Desired Skills and Qualifications:
This is an entry-level position; no fishing experience required. However, salmon fishing and crab processing experience are pluses for this extremely competitive position. Candidates must have unrelenting endurance and a willingness to do grunt work, without questioning and without backtalk, for little pay. Must think on your feet without much direction and unhesitatingly take orders from a short-tempered, seemingly unreasonable captain. Whiners need not apply. Candidates can't be susceptible to seasickness and must be able to stay alert and function through long, cold, sleepless hours.

Ideal candidate has impeccable knife skills and is handy with a sledgehammer. Must perform all the above duties on a reeling boat with icy, slippery decks and around ropes and coils for which one misstep could mean a fatal accident. Due to the danger involved, it's recommended that beginners come to terms with their own mortality and prepare to meet their maker before stepping aboard. Not for quitters: Once you start, there's no turning back -- in the middle of the ocean, the only designated emergency exit off this ride is overboard.

Why You Should Want This Job:
If you're struggling to find experience in a job with upward mobility, this is the position for you. Receive on-the-job training through exhilarating, dangerous adventures. Quickly claw your way up the crab boat ranks -- that is, if you're still interested in making this your career after your first trip.

http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/deadliestcatch/hsw-crab-boat-deckhand.htm l

A crab boat deckhand must be a jack-of-all-trades, willing to do whatever it takes to contribute to the team. The deckhand takes on any role necessary in grueling conditions in one of the most dangerous occupations on the face of the Earth. And because a crab boat crew shares the profits of the haul, deckhands endure the tempers and wrath of their fellow shipmates when they make expensive mistakes.

Wanted:
Deckhand who knows the ropes of a crab boat.

Job Description:
This position is responsible for doing anything and everything necessary to keep a crab boat running smoothly and productively. Duties range from menial grunt work to taking the wheel from the ship's captain. The deckhand is responsible for throwing the shot (rope) and buoys out to sea for setting crab pots, as well as helping to haul in the catch. This entails throwing a grappling hook out to retrieve the buoys and attaching it to the mechanical winch for lifting. The deckhand must also help steady the enormous, 800-pound pot for placement on the lift.

Other duties may include but are not limited to: repairing nets and equipment as needed, clearing the deck of ice, generally keeping the boat clean and taking on double duty as cook. All tasks are performed in freezing-cold temperatures and fierce winds. Getting caught up in the long ropes or lines strewn about the deck and being tossed overboard could spell death by drowning or hypothermia.

Desired Skills and Qualifications:
No greenhorns need apply — all applicants must have previous experience on a crab boat. Those with extensive experience may also be eligible for a position as deck boss, managing other deckhands. Impeccable accuracy while tossing a grappling hook required. Should also be proficient at knot-tying, heavy lifting, using a knife and navigation. Expertise in the culinary arts a plus. Overall, should be willing to lend a hand at all tasks.

An eye for efficiency is key: An ideal candidate looks for and creates time-saving methods for speeding up every single necessary task in the crab fishing process. At the same time, a deckhand must be flexible enough to adapt to the atmosphere of teamwork already existing among crew members. Candidates must also be thick-skinned enough to take harsh criticism from a demanding captain.

Why You Should Want This Job:
In this job, you'll get fresh air on the open seas, work with your hands and be proud of your accomplishments in a thrilling environment. You'll feel part of a team and get opportunities to rise in the ranks to someday captain your own crab boat.

in the real world where job one was catching crabs was hiring a catain like derrick a good idea -no, but in tv land its a great hire as it makes for great tv to have an a88hole like this run your boat so your tv market share increases with all the drama and friction.

If drama really caught critters of the sea, they would develop some estrogen emitting lure and bank deposits would multiply substantially.

I think Josh and Jake should have sat down with Derrick and asked him more questions before they got out on the water. If he would have made some of those comments that he made later on, they would not have had him go out with them.

The other Captain, Tony seemed to mesh with them more personality wise.
