'Below Deck': Fuming Captain Lee Rosbach cancels charter after fearing dead bodies would show up at his yacht
'Below Deck' is known for the drama the charter guests bring. But nothing that cannot be contained. Well, mostly. In this week's episode of 'Below Deck' Season 8, the guests came off way too enthusiastic in downing bottles of Champagne. They finished 5 bottles of champagne and more. Obviously, they were drunk by the time they got dressed for dinner. Delores, who was visibly drunk, jumped into the water, which left Captain Lee Rosbach fuming.
Captain had to take the extreme step of canceling the charter in order to keep everyone safe. However, this is not the first time that a charter ended early. In one of the earlier seasons, he had to do the same.
"I don't need dead bodies here," the captain yelled as he instructed the crew to get her out of the water. While the guests tried to pacify him confirming Dolores was a good swimmer, Captain Lee couldn't be convinced. He was angry and abusing everyone in sight for endangering lives. "We are going to the docks," he said while storming out of the dinner area.
Eddie Lucas, who checked with them earlier in the day about the activities that were planned for them, was able to gather that they would throw tantrums for everything under the sun and so, thought it wise to advise the Captain to skip the Gatsby-themed dinner he was invited to. Captain Lee went anyway. Little did he know that a night of fun interaction with the guests would turn out to be such a nightmare. What made things worse was Dolores refusing to step out of the water while showing no regard for the Captain's orders.
"I hate to tell you this, but your charter is over,” he told the rest of the guests and added: “She’s in the water. She’s drunk. And she won’t come out. We’re going to head back to the dock because I’m not putting up with this.” Will he really cancel it or consider the fact that the guests paid a lot of money to enjoy a few days at sea? Time will tell.
