When going for the All Decked Out achievement, this one will come naturally since you need to sell much more than $1M in crab to fully upgrade your boat.

This is just how much money in crab you sell, which doesn't take into account the salaries you pay to your fishermen. Therefore, you will reach $1M in crab sold before you actually get $1M in your account to spend.

I would also go for Mr Popular at the same time since you need to be making decent money to be able to hire some of the fishermen.

Here are some tips on the fastest way to make money:

- Skip the Opilio seasons, you make $4.60/lb for King crab vs only $1.50/lb for Opilio and you catch about the same weight for both. To skip season, just do fast time until season starts and then when you are in port, use LT to end season early.

- Not sure all the factors that go into the dead crab loss, but seems if you keep them on your boat too long, it greatly increases. Therefore, I would go into a harbor and sell your crab a few times during the season to avoid too much dead loss.

- Soak pots at least 48 hours or more and make good use of the crab survey and weather on your map. I usually did fast time until the weather was clear above my pots, which makes fishing a heck of a lot easier (and less nauseating).
