If you’ve read the episode guide descriptions for season 4 you’ve probably noticed that’s there are multiple mentions of Capt. Phil and his deteriorating health. Now he speaks about it.
Captains Phil Harris and Keith Colburn recently were interviewed in Chicago. During the interview(scroll to the correct clip), Capt. Phil informed viewers that what he suffered while out at sea was a pulmonary aneurysm, a serious condition to say the least. So within a few short weeks, we’ll be watching a very ill skipper on the Cornelia Marie. The F/V Cornelia Marie website preceeded this post with this information so please take a moment, make the jump, and leave a comment of support for this brave fisherman who’s shared his life, family, and work with the rest of the world!
