Blake Painter becomes skipper of his own fishing vessel!

     Blake Painter, who was previously featured on “Deadliest Catch” as deck boss and then later as skipper of the F/V Maverick has been shopping for his own boat now for several months as mentioned previously on Deadliest Reports.  Well he’s found one!  According to his family’s website–the F/V Evening Star–Blake has become the proud owner of the F/V Tradition.

The F/V Tradition is fairly new for a commerical fishing boat.  She was built in 1991, is 58 feet long and made of heavy steel.  Captain Blake will continue his tradition of fishing in Alaska by fishing for cod, halibut, and sablefish in the cold dark waters we’ve all come to know and love!

    That’s too bad. He’s a little whiner and not worthy of being captain of anything.

    Congratulations Blake!! Our family has always watched The Deadliest Catch. When we didn’t see you on this season, I started researching what happened to you, as you are a local. I was stoked that you now have your own boat! You have worked so hard and totally deserve it. Our prayers will be with you and your crew, that you prosper with this new endeveour and are safe. We live in Manzanita, OR. We full well know and understand what the weather can do. The December 07 storm destroyed our home in Bay City. Good luck and best wishes… Penny
