Many Alaskans rely on heavy-duty equipment like bush planes, logging cranes and fishing boats to make a living. What happens, however, when the tools of the trade break down and the nearest help is hundreds of miles away? Braving the elements in wild, remote corners of the state to repair super machines are the full-service master mechanics at Jim's Equipment Repair, an Anchorage-based company serving residents since 1994. "Big Fix Alaska" chronicles the around-the-clock "rescues" made by owner Jim Evridge and his team, from stranded crab boats in the middle of the Bering Sea to frozen multimillion-dollar cranes near the North Pole.
