Captain Lee Rosbach Reveals "What No One Sees" of Him Docking on Below Deck

The Below Deck boss breaks down what made a recent docking so challenging.

Docking is always one of the most crucial and stressful aspects of working on a yacht, and we needn't look any further than the November 16 episode of Below Deck for evidence of that.

With rain coming in, Captain Lee Rosbach decided to pull the anchor in and head to the dock at Jolly Harbour in Antigua immediately as the My Seanna crew prepared for the first group of charter guests to disembark the vessel. Though Captain Lee asked for radio silence until the yacht got to the dock, we heard a couple of interior crew members speak over the radio at that time, which the Below Deck boss was none too happy to hear.

Captain Lee explained to one fan on Twitter as the episode aired why the interior crew doesn't use a separate radio channel during times like these. "I need everyone on the same page at critical times so all know what is going on in case something goes south," Captain Lee tweeted. "Plus they don't always remember to change back when docking is done. Tried it before."

Captain Lee said in the episode that with "tight quarters" at the dock and "lots of wind," this docking at Jolly Harbour was a "recipe for disaster." "This particular harbor that we're in, pucker effect goes into overdrive," Captain Lee said in an interview during the episode. "If you f--k up just the least little bit, you're gonna spend a lot of money."

However, the docking was even more challenging than Below Deck viewers may have realized. "What no one sees, is that I only have enough water to spin the boat within its own length," Captain Lee revealed about the docking on Twitter. "If I venture outside of that perimeter I will run aground and that is what makes it so tough with wind and current and tides."

Luckily, the yacht made it to the dock just fine, and Captain Lee breathed a sigh of relief in the episode.

Well done, My Seanna crew!
