The Offshore Outlaw may not be the fanciest boat in the Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks, but it’s definitely one of the most functional. Captain Adam Price prides himself on his thrifty nature and ability to turn his boat into a fully equipped tuna machine on the Atlantic. The interior of his cabin is pretty much what you would expect for any DIY project – kept together with bungee cords, super glue and probably some duct tape. Still, it works for Price’s crew and at the end of the day, it holds all their equipment and their freshly caught fish. What else could you ask for?

In a recent clip from Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks, the captain took fans on a tour through his waterfront home, “where all the magic happens.”

Check out Captain Adam Price’s setup in the clip below.

“We’re not trying to have a pretty boat,” the Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks star explained. “This is a workboat. It doesn’t have to be pretty for us.”

The first feature of the Offshore Outlaw that Price shows to fans is the – let’s call it “antique” – rug. According to the captain, the floral accessories were a hand-me-down from his grandmother. But really, we kind of already knew that. Resting on top of the rug was an old dresser that Price found in a barn. The piece of furniture seemed “normal” enough for the captain, and so he fixed it to the cabin, slapped some stickers on it and repurposed it tackle storage.

“We fish a lot of rough days, so everything’s gotta be tied down,” the Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks captain said.

‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Star Takes Fans Below Deck

As any cast member of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks will tell you, even though the episodes only really cover the action-packed scenes on the water, this is only a fraction of their trip. In between moments at the reels, the crews spend most of their time below deck, catching what little sleep they can get, sharing a meal or chatting around a deck of cards. So, in order to help us understand what the Offshore Outlaw crew does in its spare time, Price took viewers to the vessel’s lower cabin.

Next up on the tour were the sleeping quarters, where Price had placed a memory foam mattress. While it does look fairly comfy, we can gather that the mattress probably came from someone’s home before becoming a part of the Offshore Outlaw.

Also downstairs was a bunch of extra gear and equipment, stored wherever Price could fit them. Other than that, there wasn’t anything too glamorous in the lower part of the boat. But then again, that doesn’t really bother Price.

“We’re not about pretty,” the Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks fishing star reiterated. “We’re all about working good.”
