Captain "Wild" Bill Wichrowski has found a new home on the Cape Caution.
The Caution may be slower and smaller than its predecessor, the Kodiak, but the ship reminds Bill of his derby days.
The Caution suffered numerous mechanical failures at dock and at sea last season, costing Bill and crew valuable fishing time.
In addition, bad fishing and weak-link deckhands plagued the boat, but this year Captain Bill hopes to regain control of his crab and crew.
