CORNELIA MARIE COMES HOMES; DEADLIEST CATCH RETURNS





The F/V Cornelia Marie has returned home to its resting place in Kodiak, Alaska. The Captain and crew have all returned safely from a successful Opilio crab fishing season.



I will leave it up to the "Deadliest Catch" editors in regard to what you'll see this year. But… it wasn't a boring year. It was a year of change that tested men and machinery…full of excitement, bad weather and injuries. However, we never loose sight of what's most important.. that everyone… Continue

Farewell to our Capt. Phil



Tonight we say "farewell" to our skipper, Capt. Phil Harris of the F/V Cornelia Marie. I expect Discovery will use great sensitivity in telling the story of Phil's last hours.



I guess in one respect we're all in the same boat together. We all have similar feelings in regard to tonight episode of “Deadliest Catch”. My Mom and even Josh don't really know what to expect on the show.



However, Josh and Johnathan were on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last… Continue

Capt. Phil always honored our soldiers

Last year, Discovery Channel taped "After the Catch" in San Diego. While Capt. Phil and the rest of the Captains were there, I received a phone call from a fellow named Peter at the Naval Medical Center. He said he read a report about the Deadliest Catch captains being in town to videotape a special show. Peter wanted to know if Phil and the others would be interested in stopping by the Prosthetics department where he worked. He said all the guys he… Continue

Capt. Phil Memorial set for April 30th

On April 30, 2010 Discovery Channel will be hosting a public memorial to pay tribute to Capt. Phil. The memorial will be the day before CatchCon and located at the Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Pier 91 in Seattle. Jake and Josh will speak about their father. In attendance I would expect Sig Hansen, Johnathan & Andy Hilstrand and Keith Colburn. I would imagine other captains and deckhands will also be in attendance. My mom, Cornelia Marie Devlin may also be there to support the… Continue

Deadliest Catch hits high ratings



The premiere episode of season 6 was the highest rated "Deadliest Catch" in the history of the series. Our boat, the F/V Cornelia Marie and crew played a large part in the opening episode. The premiere showed Josh and Jake not getting along and Josh thinking about working on another boat. It's very hard to work for your father as the Skipper and your brother as another deckhand. I know, this is what I did on the Cornelia Marie. In fact, I did take a break from the… Continue

Cornelia Marie heads back to the Bering Sea

The F/V Cornelia Marie has been out of commission since the middle of February with a replacement of our "reduction gear" needed. This has been a costly and burdensome repair. The entire crew has been off since Capt. Phil's memorial on February 21st.



Finally, the crew is headed back to Alaska to finish up the long Opilio season. We still have a couple of trips left to meet our crab quota. Unfortunately, most of Alaska, including Dutch… Continue

Capt. Phil: A Celebration of Life





Discovery Channel hosted a memorial service for Capt. Phil's family and friends today. It was an event most agreed Phil would have loved. F/V Cornelia Marie crew members flew in from the Bering Sea to join former crew members and other Bering Sea captains. Many of the "Deadliest Catch" boat captains were in attendance to pay their respects to their friend and fellow fisherman. The Alaska Crab fishing fleet is close knit and many fishermen know each… Continue

Dutch Harbor mourns Capt. Phil

walt_cm

The following article is by ROSE COX of The Dutch Harbor Fisherman (rcox@alaskanewspapers.com)

To fans of the "Deadliest Catch," he was captain Phil Harris, the famous crab-killing rider of the wild Bering Sea.

But to those living at the tip of the Aleutian chain, he was just plain Phil, one of the most endearing, demanding - and sometimes downright irritating - men Dutch Harbor ever loved.

Harris, 53, suffered a stroke Jan. 29 while the fishing boat he…
