Clark Pederson – Greenhorn
A graduate of Washington State University as well as the California Maritime Academy, Clark has his third mate unlimited license and has been complementing his education with real-world experience. Clark worked at Shaver Transportation on the Columbia River as a deckhand/captain-in-training before joining the Northwestern as the new greenhorn of the boat. He quickly became an established deckhand — and Sig’s new son-in-law after he married Mandy in 2017. Clark, along with Karl, adds some young blood to a boat comprised of salty, hardened veterans. Clark has the mariner skills and confidence to step up, but also the grace to let Mandy lead, and support her however he can.
