The Below Deck Med Crew Faces a "F-cking Scary" Issue: "Someone Can Get Hurt, If Not Die"

The Mustique crew members disagree over how to solve a terrifying issue in a new Below Deck Mediterranean preview.

By Sophie Vilensky

As Below Deck Mediterranean fans are well aware, Season 9 has been a wild one. From the very beginning, the Mustique crew has been plagued with drama, both personal and in the form of yacht-related issues. And as a new preview for Episode 7 shows, the problems aren't ending any time soon.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

In the clip, which you can watch above, an anchor issue comes into play, and it may leave guests, including The Traitors' Trishelle Cannatella, unable to make their flights to Paris.

While in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea on the last day of charter, Captain Sandy Yawn announces that the crew is unable to get the ship's anchor up. 

"The anchor shaft isn't working, so we're going to have to leave the anchor," she explains. "We put the buoy on it and get the divers, and then we get it transported back to the marina. And then we install it there, because we need our anchor."

While the plan seems to be going fine — even the guests are okay with the delay, as they get more of a vacation — deckhand Nathan Gallagher doesn't love the process.

"This is f-cking scary," he says while tying the anchor to a buoy on the water. While Sandy says they're free to drop the anchor, it's not that simple.

"We need to take a step back," explains deckhand Joe Bradley. "Because if this anchor chain hits you, or hits the boat, someone can get hurt, if not die."

Captain Sandy Yawn Explains the Problem with the Anchor

Because we're not all yachties, Sandy is kind enough to explain what exactly is going on with the ship.

"I've never had to leave an anchor on purpose because a windlass didn't work," she explains in a confessional. "We tried to tie a line on and haul the anchor in by hand. Didn't work. Option two is we leave our anchor and have someone come and retrieve it. It's a risk to leave our anchor. It's a very expensive piece of equipment. Hopefully it's still there when we return. The weather is here, I have to get these clients back to the dock. We don't really have an option." 

So, will they be reunited with the anchor? Will anyone get hit by that terrifying chain? Find out when Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9, Episode 7 airs on Monday, July 15. Watch it live at 9/8c on Bravo or stream the next day on Peacock.
