The FV Cornelia Marie will start its 2011 Opilio season in just a couple more days. Here's a picture of the gang from yesterday getting together before they all head out into the Bering Sea. You can see Jake and Josh in the yellow and orange rain gear having a laugh. Thanks to Cindy Harmer
for finding this pic and to Keith Colburn for letting use this image from his facebook page
If you are interested in keeping up with what's going on with the Cornelia Marie - there are a few places you can go. First, you can visit the Marine Traffic
website. This site will show you the real time location of vessels in the port of Dutch Harbor. The site can be a bit frustrating and not quite accurate all of the time. However, if you click on the "show ship names" tab, you'll be able to find most (all?) of the Deadliest Catch vessels somewhere in the port of Dutch Harbor. See if you can find the FV Cornelia Marie - here's a big hint - for whatever reason we show up with the boat name "00000000". For real time pics of Dutch, try the Dutch Harbor live webcams
For official updates, the CorneliaMarie.com website is the best source. Sometimes, I see false reports on other sites about our boat and crew so check back here if you ever have questions. If you're on Twitter, you can also receive tweets from the FV Cornelia Marie
. Lastly, the most informed fans can be found right here on the Deadliest Catch Fan (DCF) website.
Thanks to everyone here for the work you put in to make this a positive, fun community.
