Arrested for trespassing in 2018 , involved in heated arguments with crew members on Below Deck
Rhylee Gerber was born on the 8th of February 1985 in Alaska. As a young kid, Rhylee spent most of her time fishing and later sailed out to see. Equivalent to the Alaskan lifestyle, Rhylee worked tirelessly to earn her credentials as a Captain. She earned her license in 2015 and started working as co-captain and first mate of a 36-foot aluminum catamaran. During her time on the fishing vessel, Rhylee had to make sure the ship navigated through treacherous winds and currents.
After years on a fishing vessel, Rhylee decided to embark on a new adventure. But this time on the white yacht that sailed through smooth ocean waters. Rhylee joined the My Seanna Crew in the sixth season and was involved in quite a few fights early on. She hated the exclusive “boys club” things and hated being left out. She has been openly critical of Captain Lee Rosbach and how he is also part of the misogyny onboard.
Shaking Things Up
Even though the boys on Below Deck were always blamed for creating a misogynistic environment, things escalated after Rhylee joined the cast. Not afraid of anyone, Rhylee had a long-going feud with Ashton, who was criticized by fans for his attitude toward the girls. The pair got into a fight early on in season six and Rhylee made sure that she was heard. Not afraid to pull her punches, Rhylee was praised by her female co-stars for her head-on approach. When she returned for the seventh season, Head Stewardess Kate Chastain was back to have her on board.
“I think that this is the perfect time and the perfect person to come in because I think that the boys onboard are becoming a little too much of a fraternity. I think Rhylee’s good at her job, I’m happy to have her back because I like her, so I’m happy for so many reasons. Rhylee shakes things up wherever she goes. Animals fear her, deckhands fear her, men fear her: as they should”.
The seventh season saw Rhylee clash heads with Ashton once again. Even though Rhylee was all set to resolve her differences, Ashton could not let them go. Her discussions often escalated to full-blown arguments and Captain Lee has been vocal that he would not be hiring Ashley for the next season. Ashley divides opinions on the crew. Of all the crew, Ashton has been the most vocal.
“She hasn’t got along with six other men that’s worked above her, and I think it’s very easy to point a misogynistic finger, when it seems like you’ve got a problem with authority and working with men. If she had gotten along with four out of the six guys, I’d say maybe there was an issue here with some of the guys.”
Life After Leaving Below Deck
Rhylee joined Below Deck in season six and returned for part of season seven, but she has not appeared on the show since then. So, what has she been up to after leaving Below Deck?
Rhylee has gone back to her roots and resumed her career as a fishing captain in Alaska. She has also embarked on a van life adventure, traveling across the United States with her dog Dolce. Sadly, Dolce passed away in July 2021, and Rhylee shared her grief on Instagram. She received condolences from many of her Below Deck castmates.
Rhylee seems to be enjoying her life away from the cameras and the drama of yachting. She has visited many places, such as Montana, California, and Florida, and shared her experiences on social media. She has also expressed her interest in environmental issues, such as ocean conservation and climate change.
