The 5th episode of “Below Deck” season 10 was an emotional one for cast members and viewers as the show’s beloved leader since the first season, Captain Lee Rosbach, shared that he had to step away from motor yacht St. David due to his ongoing injury.
In the episode, he said while he had the desire and the drive to be at the helm, his body wasn’t on the same page and he had no choice but to leave the vessel. “I finally gave myself a plane ticket home, but it’s round trip,” he said to the crew members during the episode. Luckily, that was the case and Rosbach shared that he’s doing much better now.
Many viewers were concerned about Rosbach and he replied to several questions on Twitter to confirm that he’s been doing a lot better. In response to one question about his health, he said, “Very good thank you.” He told someone else, “Been a tough run, but doing so much better now, back in my routine. Thanks.”
Rosbach also told People that he was doing much better thanks to lots of physical therapy. He said while doctors still don’t know what originally caused his nerve issue, it’s “in a good place” now.
