Rosbach writes a weekly weblog about every episode the place he provides his observations and evaluate of every crew member. The final two episodes featured Pienaar changing into enraged and violent towards chief stew Kate Chastain. She leaves the boat in the course of the night time as a result of his conduct scared her. Rosbach was not aware of what occurred. This left him feeling confused and annoyed when Chastain was not on the boat the subsequent morning.

He has additionally remarked that if he had identified what occurred, it will have ended fairly in a different way. In his weblog, he counseled Chastain for not throwing Pienaar beneath the bus. But on the identical time wished she would have been extra forthcoming with what actually occurred.

Rosbach isn’t assured Pienaar will flip it round

During the episode, Rosbach tweeted and appeared livid with Pienaar’s conduct. He shared once more in his weblog what he considered Pienaar’s actions and conduct.  “I have no idea who or what you think you are doing. This story line with you getting black out drunk and misbehaving is getting really old,” Rosbach wrote. “Over a thousand dollars damage caused by your behavior at the beach club and then make unwanted sexual advances on a superior, yeah, I said that, check your epaulettes, and then you try to physically attack her, and then you don’t even remember any of it. I don’t know but I really sense a problem here.”

Rosbach was additionally agitated with how Pienaar dealt with the state of affairs the subsequent day. “You stated that you were going to be the bigger person and apologize but I didn’t get the sense that you thought you really should have. But the offended party, Kate, came to the wheelhouse, took the heat, and not once did she attempt to throw you under the bus. Even though you thoroughly deserved it. No, she covered for your ass. Then you have the gall to say, ‘when you were younger you had a temper’. News flash Ashton, you still have a temper, especially when you get black out drunk.”

He added that Pienaar additionally arrange deckhand Rhylee Gerber for failure too. “As far as the fishing trip, Rhylee did what she was supposed to do, with absolutely no help from you. You weren’t part of the team, you just sat back and hoped that Rhylee would fail so you could toss her under the bus and say, see I told you she wouldn’t work out. Well lets just see how that works out for you. I am sorely disappointed in you and your behavior so far. My only hope is that you can turn it around, but I’m not counting on it.”

Without realizing the severity of the state of affairs, Rosbach couldn’t do something about it. “Kate, my only issue is that you didn’t let me know when you left or a note or something so I would know you were ok,” he shared. “Now that I see why you left; I really wish you would have let me know what was going on so I could have dealt with it. And I certainly would have dealt with it quickly and firmly to say the least. You showed a great deal of class by not tossing Ashton under the bus that he would’ve been deserving of.”

Rosbach additionally now sees how Pienaar is attempting poison the remainder of the boys on the boat towards Chastain and Gerber too. Although deckhand Brian de Saint Pern was indirectly concerned within the incident with Chastian, Rosbach now sees what Pienaar is attempting to do and isn’t glad. “Brian, not much to say. I’m really shocked that you just keep eating from the bowl of bs that Ashton keeps feeding you and Tanner about Kate and Rhylee,” Rosbach wrote. “The fishing trip was not all that one sided at all, but you immediately jumped on Rhylee without having all the facts. I’m surprised at you.”
