A community for fans of the F/V Time Bandit!

(Photo is (c)Cass Hillstrand.)

The F/V (fishing vessel) Time Bandit is a crab fishing boat that operates out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska in the Bering Sea. It is owned and operated by the Hillstrand family; Johnathan, Andy, and Neal continue to do what they grew up doing, along with Johnathan's son Scott.

Johnathan Hillstrand: Captain during King Crab season.
Andy Hillstrand: Captain during Opilio season.
Neal Hillstrand: Engineer, relief skipper, and cook.
Scott Hillstrand: Deckhand.
Russell Newberry: Deckhand.
Eddie Uwekoolani: Deckhand.

This crew is notorious for pulling pranks on each other as well as other boats. They play as hard as they work! The Time Bandit and her crew can be seen on Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. Shut up and fish!
