After receiving ownership of the boat following a divorce, she partnered with the late Capt. Phil Harris and set out to fish for crab in Alaska's Bering Sea.The rest is maritime, and reality-TV, history.After Harris' death from complications of a stroke in early 2010, the future of the boat became uncertain.
