10/20/03 crab NWS::  Business partners Quinn Ferguson and Steve Toomey, both from Seattle, WA check out ocean charts on their computer in the wheelhouse of the F/V Exito and plan where they will next make a set to catch crab.  This year's ADFG forecast of 14.7 million pounds was the largest projected harvest of Bristol Bay red king crab in 12 years.  It will be several weeks before crabbers know if that harvest was met.  The season lasted 5 days and 2 hours and was plagued with gale force winds of 35 knots or higher almost everyday.
