Zack And Nick Had Blowout Fight On The Deadliest Catch
One thing that Zack clearly alluded to was something that was captured by the Deadliest Catch cameras. While they both worked on the F/V Cape Caution, under Captain Wild Bill, Zack Larson and Nick McGlashan had quite fight. This was over how to train a greenhorn.
His beautifully written eulogy is a loving send off. Currently, no other cast member has shared a eulogy. We can assume that they will wait to share their feelings for the Deadliest Catch cameras. The new season should air sometime in early spring.
What Zack Larson Wrote To Eulogize Nick McGlashan
Former Deadliest Catch star Zack Larson wrote a beautiful message to his former crew mate Nick McGlashan. Although he is no longer on Discovery, he is still fishing. Currently, he is the captain of F/V Elinor J, working for Captain Sean Dwyer’s family.
He posted this on Instagram.
“I’ve probably erased what I wanted to write a hundred times already. It seems more real now that I’m putting my thoughts down. Nick brought new challenges for me to this industry. He made everything look effortless on deck.”
“I was envious of that, I would give everything I had out there and he would be laughing as waves came over the rail and splashing against him. Yelling ‘look at my office, what a view!’ Or stealing lines I came up with for the show, but delivering way better than I ever could.”
“I always thought during our years on the Cape Caution and the ones to follow that he’d be running a boat in Alaska like our dads. Picturing us running boats and working together for the next 30 years always seemed like the reality and not a dream.”
“My heart breaks for his two children, his parents, family and friends. It’s clear how many people Nick affected during his life. I’ve read an unbelievable amount of positive stories people have shared about him since his passing. He will be missed more than he will ever know. I hope we all remember the positives about our time with Nick and not forget the struggles he faced daily. Rest in Peace Nick.”
