SIf you watch "Deadliest Catch" on TV you will recognize the Time Bandit boat that works in the Bering Sea, fishing for crabs. It is a true reality show of real fisherman doing deadly work in challenging conditions. There are a few people in this photo, there is a man in yellow at the back at the right end, by the colored buoys and some in the middle area of the boat. I am not positive, but I heard that the boats Captain was on board.

We were fortunate to get to see the actual Time Bandit at dock in Homer, Alaska. It was docked for repairs for the next season.

    Good shot!! I have seen that show a couple of times and am totally amazed at the foul conditions that they work under. You've captured a nice slice of the local scenery here too.
