Edgar Hansen Wikipedia
Edgar was born as the youngest son of Sverre Hansen and Snefryd Hansen in Seattle, Washington, on January 14, 1971. His parents, as well as grandparents, were all fishermen. Thus, growing up in a fisherman family, Edgar and his brothers learned the skills at a very young age.
As a child, he attended junior high schools for formal education but left it mid-way. He took on his family business from the early age of 18 and made it his profession. Later, he joined his brother Sig Hansen’s ship Northwestern as a cook. However, he was soon promoted to the deck and eventually served as relief skipper of his brother Sig.
In 2016, Edgar even served as Northwestern’s captain when Sig suffered a heart attack. As hard-working as he was, he could not make the right decision at the wrong time. He put the ship and entire crew in danger on multiple occasions. Following the incidents, the ship’s crew did not receive their new captain very well. However, his dedication to the show and his love for fishing made him popular among the viewers.
