It seems as though the issues between Captain Sandy Yawn and Captain Lee Rosbach started with someone getting fired — but it wasn’t either captain who was let go. Captain Lee left “Below Deck” during Season 10 due to ongoing health issues and Yawn swiftly came in to replace him. At the time, Rosbach was grateful for his friend being available to take the helm in his absence, even telling her, “Thanks for coming. I appreciate you coming on such short notice. I’ll do my best to get back as quickly as I can to relieve you,” during an episode of the show (via Us Weekly).
Yawn mirrored that sentiment, confirming during a confessional, “My hope is that Captain Lee feels supported. I’m here to take care of his boat and his crew until he gets back.” Unfortunately, during that time, Rosbach’s replacement made a decision that would end the pair’s friendship when she chose to fire crewmember Camille Lamb, who worked as a stew on Rosbach’s boat, without consulting him beforehand. While Yawn spoke to Rosbach afterward, he was upset that she didn’t let him know ahead of time. And, when their feud entered the social media space, things really got heated.
