SMB Deckhand – Age 23, Ninilchik, Alaska
The other half of the “Swedish Twins,” Ronnie previously tendered herring and salmon aboard the F/V Kona Kai. Impressed with his diligence, Zack offered Ronnie the greenhorn spot that was notoriously held by woeful performers who lacked prior crabbing experience. For the most part, Ronnie bucked the trend, meeting Wild Bill’s expectations, despite a few missteps along the way. One such misstep – neglecting to toss the buoys far away from the boat – resulted in them becoming entangled in the props, forcing Bill to head to town for repairs. As the new season looms, Ronnie will get another shot to take the lessons he has learned from his inaugural season and further establish himself within the crew. Watch out for Ronnie on wheel watch, as he’s been known to not only fall asleep, but also sleepwalk.
