You Will be Missed
We had seen how hairy life on a crab boat could be thanks to reality television, one of those 'top ten deadliest jobs' shows or something of the like. It was not long after that the Captains and crews of the Discovery Channel's show Deadliest Catch were regular guests in our family room. We have been devoted fans, enjoying both the laughs and the frightening moments that come along with watching these characters fish.
We had a chance to hear captain Phil speak a few years back, he and another Captain from the show came to New Bedford for a Q and A at The Working Waterfront Festival. Phil and Jonathan were every bit as colorful in real life as they are on TV, there is nothing "extra" put on for show. I am grateful I was able to witness this man talk about his life's passion in person, and he will be remembered by those that welcomed his gritty voice, chain smoking, family fights, and constant antics into their homes over the years. R.I.P. Captain Phil Harris, you will be missed.
