Long sail the Cornelia Marie and the spirit of Phil Harris. He wore his soul on his sleeve for the world to see. If he had only known the friends he created by just being Phil,and I'm proud to call myself one. RIP my friend. Was a pleasure watching the reality of your life,and a heart felt sorrow in your passing.

RIP Phil. Heaven now has a shining star that will watch over all crab fishermen on every journey. When there's a storm in the skies we all know that you will grab with both hands and no fears to guide the fishermen home. God bless and sleep tight.

To the Harris Family. I am the first born to an Alaskan salmon fisherman. I lived, ate and breathed gill nets and fish. When I found this lovely program featuring how very hard some of our Dads worked and lived to make that almighty dollar. Dad was so much like your Captain Phil with a little of Johnathan sprinkled in too. All loved him. I will miss Captain Phil so very much on the show in the future and will always remember him.My love to you all.

Is there any way to get a copy of the exact tribute to your Dad that was on Discovery Channel? I would give anything to have the DVD. 8-16-10 Ann

The world was finally offered a real, edited yet unscripted, show of Men of the world to be seen in a life of reality that Capt. Phil Harris proved to earn senior ranks. Thank you Capt. Phil Harris for allowing us aboard Miss C.Marie, taking us far above the lives so many lead. Sincerest luck to the Harris' who must constantly endeavor as always, to succeed. You will with what the Capt. left in You.

It's just not the same watching the Deadliest Catch without Phil Harris. My daughter(10) and I love watching the show, and will continue, but will miss him everytime we see a commercial, or watch the program. To Jake and Josh our thoughts and prayers are with you all the time
