After Captain Elliott Neese's departure, the Saga got a new captain: former Northwestern deckhand Jake Anderson. The rookie captain's mettle was tested -- with bad weather, rogue waves, and a crew inherited from Elliott's time on the boat.
Back at the helm, Jake is eager to prove himself on the Kings grounds. He's cleaned house and brought on a new crew -- including longtime friend Nick "Sunshine" Tokman -- stacking his deck with a team of veterans that have his back.
The boat's been cleaned up too, having undergone a summer of renovations. Jake is hoping a new captain, a new crew, and a new paint job will rebrand the Saga as a top performer in the fleet.
