The Summer Bay
After decades serving as a captain for other boat owners, "Wild" Bill Wichrowski finally followed through on his long-standing dream and purchased his own boat, the Summer Bay. Built in 1981, the Summer Bay is a 32m x 8m fishing vessel with a gross tonnage of 196. In Season 14, Bill and his crew’s collective resolve was tested when deckhand Spencer Moore had two brushes with death, including one that saw him take an icy plunge into the Bering Sea. Never in his 40-plus-year career as a captain had he had a man go overboard.
