The book tells the story of how he came to be a Captain in the first place. How he went from tradie to restauranteur to sailor and all the ups and downs in between. Of course, it is all told in his very upfront and direct manner which is amazing. The stories all have a way of leading in to each other, the way they would if you were having a long conversation with a good friends over a few frosty beers. Exactly the kind of feel you would want to get from this book. When he eventually gets to the part where he's captain of a luxury yacht for good owners, the details disappear. He gives a brief mention about the Bravo series. I assume the details are sketchy because Lee doesn't want to bite the hand who feeds him, but that's the entire point of why anyone would read this book! I'd assumed he'd have hilarious stories about crew shenanigans and impossible to please, demanding guests, but Lee isn't sharing. They added: "Wish I could blame it on him having to deal with his physical condition, but he's always had a foul mouth." Again, it's not bad but it left me wanting more. I know he has 5 kids but he only ever mentions 1 in the book. I was always curious how he balanced being a captain with family life as he travels so much and absolutely none of that was mentioned. He brings up his wife a bit but it still feels really dismissive of the family related labor she must have put in to support a career that had him gone for weeks or months at a time. On the show he has also frequently mentioned that she worked with him on boats and was a chief stew for some time but this also doesn't come up at all in the book.

Expecting stories from the show, I was surprised to find this as more of a life lessons book that doesn't even hint at the show until the last chapter. Following along Captain Lee's life from before he fell in love with the sea, he imparts his wisdom and experiences. This memoir tells the story of how Captain Lee became a Captain. His life starts out in Indiana and with an unexpected change of events, he and his wife, end up in Turks and Caicos. He is ready for a change from the Midwest and he talks his wife into a big move to paradise. What do they have to lose? Who wouldn't want to move to paradise? What can go wrong? Or does it all go right? I hope that he gets to witness that and walking away knowing that he’s healthier, he’s better, and he finished with an excellent crew," Sandy added. This autobiography was written before the unfortunate drug overdose death of Captain Lee's adult son. Lee, as a captain has a very wry sense of humor, swears like the sailor he is and doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks about him. This lead me to believe that this colorful man would coauthor a good autobiography. I was disappointed because I'd assumed that it would be about his career as a captain on luxury yachts and that he'd have some good tea to spill, but he doesn't dish at all. The reality star is currently available to book on Cameo and has used his time on the app to divulge his best secret tips for a successful Valentine’s Day.I feel like my rating is probably more like 3.5 stars and it's making me realize my whole rating system is garbage. I usually rate books I don't like a 3 because writing a book seems hard (and 2 is reserved for just the worst, almost no one gets 1). I didn't dislike this book but it also doesn't seem worthy of 4 stars. Can't help but wonder how his wife fended for herself being on foreign ground. It seems that Captain Lee would pull up anchor and be on some fairly lengthy trips. Lee and his wife have four boys and he only mentions The very last chapter of the book explains a bit about how Captain Lee ended up on the Bravo show, and some of the misadventures they had with figuring out how to make a show on a yacht. The book is not about the show, and you won't find a bunch of good gossip about your favorite (or least favorite) characters here. This book is all about what made Captain Lee, Captain Lee. Which is exactly what I was hoping for. I really enjoyed this book. I think Maryanne must be an actual saint. This book is full of interesting and funny stories about his life and those around him. Readers will get to read about how he unexpectedly fell in love with boats and wanted to become a Captain out on the sea. I love how I can hear Captain Lee’s voice in this through and through. Very entertaining sea stories and I enjoyed learning a little more about a dude I like watching on TV. He’s awesome and I wouldn’t mind hanging out with him, Kate and Josiah. He seems fun!

Captain Lee Below Deck viewers have the same complaint as Captain Lee

Obviously, I wasn’t expecting this to be a ground breaking literary memoir. I wasn’t a fan of the format, the chapters seemed a bit run on. That being said, it’s what I expected and I enjoyed it. The yacht has traveled far and wide for the show cruising to the jaw-droppingly beautiful St Kitts and Nevis in season 9, the sun-kissed Caribbean in season 8 andthe South Pacificislands of Tahiti in season 6.Offering Sandy a health update, he told the outgoing captain he was "doing great" after treatment for his sciatic nerve. He is also a fan of Haute Cuisine and eats at least once a day out in a good restaurant with his wife Mary Anne.

In confessional, Lee explained: "I've made a lot of improvement, I've been spending every day in physical therapy and it was tough. No! This is your birthday present. This is your Valentine’s Day present. This is your birthday card. This is your Valentine’s Day card.” So glad to see this info about Capt.Lee. I have watched his show for several years, was watching when his wife joined him, and watched the pain when he lost his son. My heart goes out to him and his wife and all the rest of his family. They have gone through a lot over the past few years but know that God will carry them through it all…that is how so many of us are able to deal with life!His father, Harold Rosbach, passed away on July 9, 2002. Harold was a veteran of the United States Army in the Second World War. Coincidentally, Lee shares the name with his dad – His full name is Harold Lee Rosbach. Doctors have assured me I'm not going to damage myself any more by working and I'll be goddamned if anything's gonna keep me from it." During Monday's episode, Sandy told the crew of her "bittersweet" exit from St. David, telling them she had "really grown fond of you all". He continued: “Oh she’s going to tell you, ‘oh it’s okay, it’s okay. Just get me something for both days'. The yacht traveled around Thailand in Season 7 where the crew and viewers were treated to a truly memorable South East Asian experience. From the iconic Phi Phi Islands to the beautiful beaches of Ko Yao Yai, there were plenty of fascinating landmarks to see on the way. Season 5 took viewers to the tranquilcruising grounds of Saint Martin whilst season 4 saw M/Y BG in the glistening waters ofthe Virgin Islands.
