He is the youngest of three Hansen brothers, both being in the same show and in the crabbing business.


Hansen took to fishing from the age of 18 years trained by his father. Hansen joined as a cook in his brother’s sailing vessel NorthWestern. He was an expert as a cook as he met the demands of the crew very efficiently and even whipped up gourmet dishes in no time.
