Just got an email from Discovery Channel:

Health Update: Captain Phil Harris

As many of you may already know, Phil Harris suffered a stroke while in port off-loading from the F/V Cornelia Marie. He has been transported to a medical facility and is receiving the best care possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and we will make more information available as we know it.

Josh and Jake Harris thank everyone for their heartfelt thought and prayers. The Deadliest Catch community has always been more like family than just fans, and Discovery Channel joins the Harris boys in thanking everyone for their wishes of support. Captain Phil is resting comfortably and is in the care of excellent doctors and nurses. We will update everyone on his progress as best we can.

For updates and to leave a message for Phil go to:

Get well, Phil! You are a hero to many and your sons need you. If you need a private nurse, I happen to know one. Just sayin’. Seriously though, now’s the time to get stubborn and not take any shit from your blood and blood vessels. Show ’em who’s boss and get better!


  1. Ah, crap. My best wishes to him and his family for a speedy recovery. But I have the feeling that’ll be it for him as far as crabfishing goes for a good long while, if not for good.

  2. I saw that yesterday and was going to make a comment on your muscle man blog, but figured it didn’t go.
