Topic: The Northwestern - Deadliest Catch boat
Yesterday me, my daughter, and her fiance went to see the Northwestern, which was docked in Ballard. We weren't sure exactly where the boat was docked, but found it after driving around the shore for about 15 mintues. We walked down to the dock, passing some big warehouse-like boat repair facilities, and went right up to the boat.
We were on the dock and heard voices on the boat, so Jason (Jessica's fiance) went on the ladder and poked his head up and asked if we could tour the boat. Edgar remembered me from the book signing, and had us come up on deck. We shook hands with Edgar and Jake Anderson, and they let us into the boat. We saw the galley, the mess, the bunkrooms, and then went up to the bridge. I got to sit in the captain's seat! It was awesome. We then went down and talked to the guys for about 5 minutes. Jake and Edgar are great guys, down to earth, and not into the celebrity thing at all. It was pretty cool to met them.
I will post my pics on Facebook.
One thing off the bucket list!
