F/V Time Bandit

F/V Time Bandit .. arrr!

Built here at Giddings in 1991, the Time Bandit has gone on to be one of the more memorable boats featured in the Deadliest Catch.  Every boat we’ve ever built has a story to tell worthy of an epic– maybe only at the dinner table with family & friends or yarned hard at the bar after work when fishing is slow, so it’s nice to see one of our own and her crew telling her story to the world.  Cheers!

  • Props: two 52×58 propellers

    Thanks for composing F/V Time Bandit, I was looking for anything very similar and
    was relieved to acquire the advice as a result of this particular

    I watched the “Time Bandit” show when it was being repaired and realized it was the boat parked at Coos Bay across from the Coast Guard station. We had wind protection while we was CRABBING at the end of the dock. We also had protection from prying eyes when we peed. I love “Deadliest Catch”. It’s even more special now. I’m gonna look at some pics with Time Bandit in the background. We were all so much younger then. Now, It’s a long walk and I use a diper and walk with a cane. Good Times

    I’m new to this. Is this where the Hillstrands will (maybe) read this? Just want to share some moments of the long ago past.
