If there’s one skill every yachtie needs, it’s being able to expertly pack a bag with just a few essentials to make any boat feel like home for an entire charter season. The cast of Below Deck Season 8 shared the items they never travel without in the Bravo Insider exclusive clip, above.
The packing lists vary from person to person, but they’re each sentimental in their own way. For example, deckhand Shane Coopersmith made sure to bring an adorable little memento to stay connected to his girlfriend: a Pokémon stuffed animal.
“My girlfriend has her own little Jigglypuff. That’s kind of how we’re staying connected while we’re gone,” he said.
Chef Rachel Hargrove, on the other hand, brought along a few items to help her stay focused on work.
“This goes with me wherever I go,” she explained, showing off a gorgeous cookbook, as well as her impressive collection of knives. “This book helps me keep inspo at all times.”
Perhaps the most heartwarming example is Captain Lee Rosbach, who has filled his personal space on My Seanna up with a tribute to his late son. To see how Captain Lee is remembering Joshua, as well as staying connected to his wife and their sweet, late dog, check out the Bravo Insider clip, above.
