Summer Bay, on Deadliest Catch – is Wild Bill’s newest boat as of summer of 2016. F/V Summer Bay was featured on season 13 of Deadliest Catch – and ya’ll will see the boat in the 2018 of season 14. Summer of 2016 after Wild Bill purchased the crab boat she spent the end of the summer getting work done in Ballard, WA at Pacific Fishermen Shipyard. Summer Bay was seen buzzing around the Seattle Ship Canal, loading pots at Fishermen’s Terminal then on her way westbound for drop at the Ballard Locks into the Puget Sound and Shilshole Bay to then run up hill to Alaska’s Bering Sea to catch crab for the fall and winter season.

The Summer Bay got her new name and paint job, the Bering Sea Deadliest Catch crab boat has a great statement, motto painted in the sides of the wheel outside it reads, “Attitude Makes A Difference” Summer Bay leads the fleet with positive words of encouragement, for these extra salty guys with sometimes…. some of the worst manners known to man or woman, may God make this saying work for Summer Bay these next fishing seasons ahead, with many extra snotty storms that shall rock the crab grounds.

Wild Bill Wichrowski scuttlebutt on the waterfront is he is the newest Grundens Embassador to outdoor gear as of 2016, word has it. In 1975 Wild Bill graduated from Norwin High School, to then join the US Navy and moved to the west coast of the USA. Alaska’s big money and big seasons of fishing brought him uphill to Alaska to become a King Crab fishermen on the Bering Sea. He chose an extra challenging crab season to be a boat owner, if only fishermen had a crystal ball to see their fishing season future, this season makes for many challenges, the lives lost on the crab boat F/V Destination and her 6 man crew, crab that is freaking extra hard to find and the Bering Sea per usual massive storms and ice building up on the boats that threatens mankind, the boats, as mother nature builds her way to destruction as sea.

F/V Summer Bay is formally known as F/V Wassilie B. once in the fleet of ‘Coastal Villages’ – the winter of February 2017 was the first season Wild Bill fished the Summer Bay as a boat owner after 2016 King Crab season; the same season in Feb. 2017 – where F/V Destination sank into the Bering Sea. The entire fleet and fishing community mornes the loss of the great men of the Destination; it shook all of us, I will miss seeing the F/V Destination buzz around the Ship Canal; God Bless our Fishermen and their families at sea and on land. In Season 14 of the Deadliest Catch the boats features on the Discovery TV Show did an at sea tribute to the F/V Destination and the 6 men who perished into the sea off St. George Island in Alaska.

F/V Summer Bay has not made her way back down to the WA Ship Canal since Wild Bill purchased the boat; surely we do expect to see her one of these upcoming off seasons for shipyard work and repairs – we shall see her again in her former home port waters of the Pacific Northwest.
