Dean Gribble

posted: 04/19/17

Dean met Jake when he first started fishing on the Northwestern, and lives down the street from both Jake and Edgar. Dean has been crabbing pretty much full-time since he graduated high school, and experienced the derby.

He was working on the F/V Sea Rover when the F/V Big Valley was sinking. The Sea Rover was the first rescue vessel on the scene, and Dean was the guy who spotted men in a raft, after his crew had seen floating empty survival suits and began to lose hope.

He has had his fair share of injuries, from being smashed by a pot to working through three opies trips with a broken finger.
