Sadly, the Aldebaran is no longer with us. The boat crashed into a rock in 2007, I believe. I might be off by a year or so. My crewmember from last season, Taylor Chaffee, was actually on the boat during the event. I wish I could relay the story in detail, but all I really remember is Taylor talking about trying to save everything she could off the boat. I always had a mental picture of Taylor standing on a submerged boat with a pasta strainer, a toaster, and any other random thing she could carry. It was actually a really haunting story, but everyone made it out safe. Photo credits go to Feodor Popof. Thanks!

I'm loving life in Alaska! Check out my viewpoint from Alaska, as I go commercial fishing and skiing thru the land of the midnight sun. This is Alaska commercial fishing shown the way it should be, from fishermen. When, I'm not working on the high seas, I enjoy time with my family in Juneau, AK enjoying life, love and salmon in southeast Alaska

  1. They hit Bold island south of Ketchikan . Sadly they were asleep at the wheel. The tender the Champion was calling them on 16 trying to wake them up as they hit the beach .
