F/V Saga, Deadliest Catch, Alaska Bering Sea Crabber, departed Fishermen’s Terminal after being on the west wall for a few days, her crane is off for repairs, next the Saga made her way for a stand by to stand by for a Ballard Bridge lift. Captain Jake Anderson at the helm, through the narrow ship canal eastbound to then hail for a Fremont Bridge lift, into Lake Union to flip around for a bit before backing the F/V Saga – stern in into drydock at Northlake Shipyard, on a lovely spring afternoon as we get a small break in what seems like never ending Pacific Northwest winter into spring rainy season, extra rainy season.

F/V Saga, has been run by Captain Jake Anderson on Deadliest Catch for the past few years. F/V Northwestern was Jake’s prior home on the Bering Sea under Captain Sig and Edgar Hansen. Jake wasted no time after taking over the Saga to give her a full shave a haircut from new pumps, a new head toilet, new heaters and much more… The Saga was in some major need of some TLC at the time. Deadliest Catch is now in Season 13, like all Alaska Bering Sea crabbers their are always projects and work to be done on the boat with massive wear and tear during fishing seasons from crabbing to summer salmon tendering; lots of ‘turn and burn’ keeping the boat ready to work and safe for crew on deck.

F/V Saga, Deadliest Catch, Alaska Bering Sea Crabber, like many AK Crabbers they have a sweet spot for shipyard work at Northlake Shipyard, Drydock on Lake Union in Seattle, the lower 48. Seattle’s beautiful city in the background adds a nice backdrop to the F/V Saga Crabber, as Captain Jake Anderson does a few flip arounds, only 2, to get-er in position to back stern in to Northlake Drydock on this spring afternoon.

Northlake Shipyard Features Include: Hull and structural welding; propulsion systems; propellers, deck machinery; electrical and hydraulic system installation and repair; carpentry, joinery work, piping – inside and outside machine shop, sandblasting and of course lots of painting. Northlake Shipyard is also homeport for research vessel M/V Blue Fin, NOAA, Tsunami, Hurricane, Weather Buoy Boat.

F/V Saga, stern into Northlake Shipyard drydock, with their film crew on board. Lots of standing by, ‘hurry up and wait’ – for the crew on deck, yo guys maybe next time throw a ‘monkey-fist’ line to help out Captain Jake on the narrow drydock back in. Per usual the editing from today will end up sliced and cut very nicely for Deadliest Catch viewers to get the fast forward version of the boat going dry in the yard. F/V Northwest, deckhand Karl Edmund Rasmussen played deckhand on the Saga this afternoon, helping them make their way into the yard on Lake Union. F/V Cornelia Marie, now has the Saga just off her stern going dry in the yard. The Cornelia Marie has been zipping around the ship canal this past month, after crabbing Captain Casey landed the boat at Icicle Seafoods dock, then over to Northlake Shipyard, a night back over to Pacific Fishermen Shipyard, and now she’s put to bed for the moment at Northlake Shipyard, with the Saga.

F/V Northwestern, Deadliest Catch, Alaska Bering Sea Crabber – lots of spring movement at Pacific Fishermen Shipyard. Spring shipyard work in Seattle and the greater Pacific Northwest is always at an all time high. Those of us who work in the Northwest and Alaska maritime industry appreciate the strong, positive economic impact of local commercial fishing boats and workboats.
