'Deadliest Catch' -- New Captain, MAJOR Tension

4/4/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who took over for Captain Phil Harris on "Deadliest Catch" could really use some sensitivity training ... because dude used Phil's death to rip a crew member ... in front of Phil's TWO SONS.

TMZ has obtained a clip from the upcoming season of "D.C." ... in which Derrick Ray -- the new skipper of the F/V Cornelia Marie -- gets into a serious verbal spat with engineer Steve Ward.

During the fight, Phil's son Jake pleads for the two to make up ... and that's when Ray heartlessly snaps and says,"Phil's not here, he's f**king dead, okay?"

To make things worse ... Phil's other son Josh is also in earshot.

The new season kicks off April 12.

they got shot of Derrick Ray, he called in the cops on Jake over his drug use. Freddie left the Cornelia Marie too, wonder if we find out why and had it anything to do with not trusting a crew member like Jake who may or not be under the influence. they put their lives in the hands of other crew members and if one of them is off their head all the time must not be a good environment

The new captain is an ass... if he is that arrogant in port under calm conditions, what will he do when it really gets stressful.
That kind of posturing and bull wont make for a good working ship.
Capt Phil (god bless him) could get away with that.. but he earned the right and he never needed to prove he was top man.

mutiny on the "Cornelia Marie"! I give em one week at sea before it gets real ugly! Those boys are still grieving and one will snap if this douche keeps treating people like this. Its one thing when its your dad yelling at you a whole other thing when its someone else who you dont have that built in respect for.

Josh Harris should be the New Captain of the "Cornelia Marie" not! this clown Derrick Ray who is already throwing his weight around, like he owns the boat, which he does not! and I feel that he should not be on Deadliest Catch at all! If anything, Captain Phil's son's should be running the "Cornelia Marie" because Captain Phil Harris owned 50% of the boat, not this guy Derrick Ray. The Discovery Channel should not have anything to do with this clown, he is already ruining the memory of our beloved Captain Phil of the "Cornelia Marie". Get Rid! of this Guy!!!!!!!!!! he doesn't belong on the "Cornelia Marie" Josh Harris needs to step up to the plate and get his license to be the new Captain..

I'll guarantee you this, that Capitan or anyone else got in my face like that he would be missing a lower jaw, and to say Capitan Phil is "dead" right in front of Phil’s sons, If I ever meet this guy his ass is mine!!!! I can’t believe Phil’s sons didn’t kick his ass!!! I’m pissed!!!

I think he might need some senstivity training. I hope the boys's are strong enough for this. Have a good season.
