Tim Boles of the Saga

Tim worked for a spell on the Saga last year -- as a deckhand, not an engineer like he'll be on the Summer Bay -- but the drama was a little too much for this old-school fisherman.

His first crabbing season was in 1989, and he's fished religiously ever since. But experience comes at a price: Smooth seas do not make skilled sailors. Tim has plenty of stories of crewmembers who have died due to carelessness, both on their own and as a result of other people. It is one of the reasons why he left his old boat, the F/V Ocean Fury.

Tim has engineered on just a few other boats, but he is confident in his skills. "My proving days are over. My work speaks for itself."
