In the upcoming episode of Deadliest Catch season 12, rookie Captain Josh Harris will be in sole control of the vessel Cornelia Marie, which recently underwent a massive overhaul. Harris and his partner Captain Casey McManus will need to catch more crabs this season to pay for the renovations made to the vessel.
Episode 4 is titled Swedish Twins, which will also see the 23-year-old Captain Sean Dwyer, of the vessel Brenna A get a taste of the Bering Sea. The wild weather, mechanical failures coupled with the inexperienced crew will haunt all the fleets pursuing the king crab bounty.
When asked about the renovations made to Cornelia Marie, Harris told TVRuckus: "I am happy with the changes. Obviously the boat interior and exterior look much better. But having new equipment eliminated a lot of the stress worrying about mechanical failures."
Harris also dished some advice for those who want to join the crab fishing industry. "School is incredibly important – you need to stay in school. Anyone who considers fishing should have a backup plan," he said.
The synopsis of the upcoming episode reads as follows:
Josh Harris is forced to take over the Cornelia Marie. Sean Dwyer gets his first taste of the angry sea. Greenhorns on the Cape Caution are slapped to attention. Weather, mechanical failures, and inexperienced crews complicate matters across the fleet.
In the previous episode, Harris found himself in trouble and called on veteran Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski of vessel Cape Caution. Bill was not happy with the rookie captain. When Harris asked about Bill's location, the veteran captain replied: "You know what this is getting really thin buddy. I told you I was at 20 and 0.6."
It seemed like Harris may have made an enemy of Bill, as after their conversation ended via the ship-to-shore radio, Bill said: "He thinks I'm a f*****g idiot. F**k you Josh Harris."
Deadliest Catch season 12 episode 4 airs on 19 April at 9pm ET/PT on the Discovery Channel. You can watch the episode live by click here (the link is available only in the US).
