Ross Inia made a name for himself on “Below Deck” Season 6 as a deckhand who quickly rose up the ranks, replacing Chandler Brooks as bosun after the latter proved himself to be less than capable. With his easy-going demeanor and fair leadership style, Inia won over fans and even earned the praise of Captain Lee Rosbach himself.
While he faced some challenges in his new role, he was still considered a better leader than his predecessor, at least according to us, and according to fellow deckhand Rhylee Gerber. Although Inia hasn’t made a second appearance on the show, he remains a very memorable member of the “Below Deck” crew.
James Hough brought his charming Northern England accent to the "Below Deck" crew in season 8 as a deckhand on the My Seanna. Despite his reputation as a flirt, James was determined to keep his job afloat and not let his desires get in the way. It took him a little while to connect with the rest of the crew.
But once he got comfortable, he set his sights on second stewardess Elizabeth Frankini. Their flirtations caused quite a stir on the boat, including a run-in with chief stewardess Francesa Rubi. In a major twist, their dalliance eventually cost Elizabeth her job. But through it all, James did his best to remain upbeat and keep things sailing smoothly.
Ross Inia — Now
After his dramatic departure from "Below Deck," Ross Inia found himself in some hot water of a different kind. The yachtie got into a scuffle with a couple of guys and even punched a police officer while in Florida, resulting in some legal troubles. However, Inia's charges were later dropped to misdemeanors.
He pled guilty to a single charge of disorderly intoxication. Since then, he's been keeping a low profile and focusing on the most important person in his life: his son Kai. While he may not have returned to the show, it's safe to say that Inia has dropped anchor in Florida and is happily sailing through life with his little first mate!
Kevin Dobson — Now
Since leaving "Below Deck," Kevin has continued to dazzle with his culinary skills. The talented chef can still be found whipping up delectable dishes as a freelance yacht chef in exotic locations. He also shares his love for cooking on his YouTube channel, "Small Town Cook," where he dishes out mouthwatering recipes for his fans to try out.
Kevin may be living a low-key life, but it’s clear his passion for creating amazing food hasn't waned. He's also focused on being a devoted dad to his daughter, making sure to balance work and family. It's clear that Kevin's time on “Below Deck” was just a part of his culinary journey.
Kevin Dobson had an interesting journey on "Below Deck" season 7, especially with the tension between him and his chief stew Kate Chastain. Kevin's high expectations for service led him to constantly clash with Kate and he wasn't afraid to call her out on it. However, he wasn't perfect himself.
His forgetfulness during a charter dinner with Captain Lee Rosbach was one we'll certainly remember for a while. Despite the rocky relationships with some of his fellow crew members, Kevin managed to prove himself in the end and stepped up his game for the rest of the charter season. Love him or hate him, It's safe to say Kevin made a lasting impression!
