The Deadliest Job in America is, claimed to be crab fishing on the Bering Sea. A good season can make one man a year’s salary in just a few days! With forty-foot waves, 700 pound crab pots, freezing temperatures and your mortality staring you in the face…this job ranks as one of the deadliest.
Kevin is an ambitious young deckhand with experience in other fisheries, but no time on a crab boat before the 2011 Opilio season.
Kevin's claim to fame - and legitimate qualifier as a man of the sea - was sailing solo to Polynesia in a 28-foot sailboat. That kind of accomplishment earned him points with the Wizard crew and Captain Keith, and his ability to learn quickly increased his standing.
Keith called him a "natural" and said he'd never seen anyone take to the mechanics of crabbing so quickly.
