SG Deckhand – Age 34, Mountlake Terrace, Wash.
Dean met Jake when he first started fishing on the NW, and lives down the street from both Jake and Edgar. Dean has been crabbing pretty much full-time since he graduated high school, and experienced the derby. He was working on the F/V Sea Rover when the F/V Big Valley was sinking. The Sea Rover was the first rescue vessel on the scene, and Dean was the guy who spotted men in a raft, after his crew had seen floating empty survival suits and began to lose hope. He has had his fair share of injuries, from being smashed by a pot to working through three opies trips with a broken finger.
