“Below Deck Med” star Sandy Yawn calls out boss Iain Maclean for failing to be in charge of the charge

ATHENS, GREECE: The latest episode of ‘Below Deck Mediterranean’ season 9 showed Captain Sandy Yawn and her crew dealing with unexpected engine problems on the yacht Mustique. During the episode, she tried to communicate to boss Iain Maclean the breakdown of the mopint system.

Sandy asked the deck crew to assist in transferring Piers to the tender boat.

“A windlass is like a bobbin thread, it has a clutch, so you free it from the teeth that haul the anchor. This starboard windlass doesn’t grab, so we have a hard time hauling the anchor,” she said in a confessional. .

Nathan Gallagher informed the captain that he had successfully activated the power on the windlass, a crucial piece of equipment used for lifting and lowering heavy objects on the ship.

The second engineer, Luka, revealed that there was a problem with the spin mechanism of the shaft, explaining that it was not working properly and caused the object to remain stationary.

After informing Sandy that the windlass was probably disconnected from the shaft, they made the joint decision to use the port windlass to move the anchor. Piers, who is an engineer, informed Sandy that the batteries had been left overnight, making them likely to be drained of power.

“The batteries drained on the tender, it’s kind of one thing after another and this is the worst possible time for a mistake like that,” Sandy said.

Shortly afterwards, Sandy discovered that it was actually Iain who had left the battery behind overnight, ultimately causing the engine problems.
