It appeared to be beautiful weather in Ballard, Washington this weekend for the Ballard Seafood Festival that has been an annual event since 1974. It was however, very deadly out as many of the featured Deadliest Catch captains and a few deckhands were on the scene signing autographs and posing with multitudes of fans. Attending were Sig Hansen, Larry and Kenny Hendricks, Phil and Josh and Jake Harris, and Greg and Ragnhild Moncrief.
Prepared for anything as usual, Sig Hansen of the F/V Northwestern sits with a line up of–count them–not one or two, but five sharpies, ready to get down to the business of signing shirts! Photo courtesy of Deadliest Catch fan, Mel.
Larry Hendricks of the Sea Star and Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie also keep themselves busy signing shirts for fans. Larry Hendricks just arrived in Seattle by way of the Sea Star. She had been docked in Ketchikan, Alaska since being refurbished to give tours but the Sea Star is now officially in the lower 48! Lucky west-coast fans may get the opportunity to see her while she’s around. Photo courtesy of Mel

Josh and Jake Harris of the F/V Cornelia Marie pose with fans and seem to have taken to their celebrity status as easily as crab fishing. Thanks Mel
The head of the Harris clan, Capt. Phil of the F/V Cornelia Marie, looks trim and fit this summer. Mel, you sure take good photos
