캡틴 리 로스바흐 is thankful Captain Sandy Yawn was able to temporarily step in for him on 갑판 아래 언제 nerve issues in his left leg caused him to unexpectedly depart the series.
“She really did me a solid,” 그는 사람들에게 말한다, looking back on when the Below Deck Mediterranean star took over for him, a moment that played out on Monday’s episode. “I’m grateful she was there.”
“That’s a very difficult situation that I put her in,” notes Rosbach, 73. “You’re taking over somebody else’s boat and somebody’s else’s crew. That’s hard enough as it is — now add on top of it the fact that you’re also filming a TV show and you’ve got me over here saying, ‘By the way, I may or may not be back. It’s open-ended, but I’ll do my best!’ I recognize how hard that is.”
“The fact that she was willing to jump in; that she sucked it up and came on board and did what I asked her to do? I owe her big time for that,” Rosbach adds. “For her to step forward and take it on says a lot about her.”
롭, who has been captaining 갑판 아래 since its debut 10 seasons ago, certainly expressed his thanks to Yawn upon her arrival in St. Lucia on Monday’s episode.
“Thanks for coming,” 그는 그녀에게 말했다, as she hugged him. “I appreciate you coming on such short notice. I’ll do my best to get back as quickly as I can to relieve you.”
Yawn, 그녀의 부분을 위해, said she was happy to help. “Captain Lee and I go way back,” said the reality star, who joined Below Deck Mediterranean back in season 2. “So when I heard about Captain Lee’s situation, I felt terrible. Who wants to leave because you can’t physically do it?”
“It’s never easy taking over for another Captain,” 그녀는 덧붙였다. “My hope is that Captain Lee feels supported. I’m here to take care of his boat and his crew until he gets back.”
She then shook his hand before he exited the 성. 데이비드 motor yacht, telling him, “Go get better.”
Viewers will have to wait for Rosbach’s return, but hopefully not too long — he exclusively revealed to PEOPLE that he’ll be back by season’s end.
That was a goal he set before he left. “I made a promise to the crew before I left that I would be back before they were done, before the season was over, and I would walk on board by myself unassisted,” Rosbach said previously. “I’m happy to say that I was able to fulfill the promise.”
“That was a very proud moment for me,” 그는 덧붙였다. “I wanted to be able to finish what I started.”
As for his health now, Rosbach says that extensive physical therapy helped strengthen his muscle to compensate for the nerve damage, which is still healing.
“I’m feeling great. Right now everything is in a good place. But it was a bit of a rough patch there,” 그는 말한다.
