    The book is 100x better. Seriously, the book goes in alot more detail, tells you about other boats that were lost and even better, tells you about past fishermen. Again, if you think the movie was good, read the book, you wont be able to get away from it.

    The book is much better. It really hits home, a my dad's whole side of the family lives in Maine and are commercial fishermen. My uncle knew the crew of the Adrea Gail and has actually worked on the boat before. Kind of spooky.

    The sister ship to the Andrea Gail is berthed here in Portland. And one of the Tamaroa's crew lives right near me. For those of you that don't know, the USGCC Tamaroa is the Coast Guard's cutter that was in the book and movie that saved everyone.

    The really do, but it is not nearly as easy as even the Discovery Channel shows it is. It is seven days of non-stop dangerous work. Good money though. Gotta have some guts (and other things!|) to do it.:)

    yes they do make that much $$, 5 to 10 days, $5,000- $50,000...but its about -100F and 20 to 30 foot seas, + alot of people die.

    well, it depends on wat kind of boat you want to work on....i used to own my own boat on capa ann, and we used to commercially tuna fish it, some weeks we would make over $20,000 catching big 700-900 pond tuna....but some other fisheries you dont make so muhc, you have to pick the right ones....the only way i could tell you , is that youd just have to go to one of these big towns, like in alaska, new bedford, gloucester, and walk the docks, and ask, thats really the only way, there isnt really any adds or anything like that you can call....most of the fishing tays within the family and freinds....
