The fishing vessel Betty Lee III wasn’t always her name and she is not the only name out there like hers. This happens to be the 3rd. Shane Reeves is the fourth generation fisherman in his family. He had been fishing for his grandfather Gilbert Krigbaum since he was 7 years old. Gilbert owned many boats but his favorites were the Betty Lee’s which he named after his loving amazing wife Betty Lee Krigbaum. When purchasing the now Betty Lee III her name was Inian Queen. She resided in Hoonah, AK where she long lined and seined next to the Inian Islands where she acquired her then name. Betty Lee III was purchased by Gilbert in 2002 to later to be sold to his grandson Shane who in 2009 bought the vessel, her gear, and her Washington Dungeness crab permit to make his own business and take on the fishing legacy of his family.
