Captain Lee Rosbach Calls this Potential Boatmance a Bad Idea

Below Deck’s Captain Lee Rosbach may be the “stud of the sea,” but he’s all about keeping business and pleasure separate. The reason? Well, let’s just say he’s seen enough boatmances to know how these things generally go.

Inevitably, some yachties fraternize nonetheless, and already on Below Deck Season 10, bosun Ross McHarg and deckhand Katie Glaser seem to be sailing into that danger zone. So when a virtual caller asked Captain Lee if he thought it was a “bad idea” for Ross and Katie to start a boatmance, especially considering Ross is her “direct boss,” he had a decisive answer.

“Absolutely. That’s never gonna end well,” Captain Lee replied. “It’s just like, ‘Go ahead. One or both of you are gonna hit the road.’” You can hear more of what he had to say in the above video.

His response wasn’t exactly shocking, though, given Captain Lee’s stance on boatmances, something he spoke about just days earlier. “[Boatmances] are the things that you’re never, ever gonna get away from. You just can’t,” he explained in a recent interview with E! News. “I mean, it’d be like, gosh, like trying to herd cats. It’s never gonna happen.”

The Below Deck cast member also had a word of caution for those who choose to engage in flings regardless. “You just hope that they work out for the best. They almost never do — we’ve all seen that before in years past,” Captain Lee continued. “And the only thing that you can hope for is that it doesn’t cause a lot of disruption internally so that you can carry on with your duties. Otherwise, you face some real distinct possibility of having to fire one person, if not two people.”

Only time will tell exactly how Ross and Katie will fare, though Captain Lee doesn’t usually steer us wrong.
