In fact, she and the deck crew were very close and worked well as a team. Glaser was grateful to be part of a support team because she described the St. David superyacht as a “monster.” Needless to say, she had some anxiety about working on such a large ship.
‘Below Decks’ Season 10 Cover Crew Supported Katie
Glaser told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that the deck crew made sure she felt included from the moment she stepped aboard the yacht.
“Early on, we guys recognized that I want to be able to do everything they did,” he recalled. “I really wanted to be able to do everything the kids did and the kids were very receptive to that. ben [Willoughby] I was helping me a lot to understand the procedures and the world of big ships. But all of us together, I think we’re just a strong deck team and we can play to people’s strengths and weaknesses and I think they responded very well to me in the sense that I really wanted to learn.”
The ‘Below Deck’ season 10 yacht was a ‘monster’
“I definitely felt like one of them during the whole process,” he added. Glaser was grateful to have a strong deck crew because the ship was a bit overwhelming. At 197 feet, St. David is the largest superyacht in the series.
“One of my biggest fears … is that I’m coming from a range of 100 or 120 feet,” he said of his concerns about working in St. David. “So this ship was just a monster to me. So when I got on, even knowing the different decks, I was like, ‘Wait, which deck? Where am I supposed to go? So it was actually a cool challenge for me because this was the biggest ship I’ve ever worked on. And I think it was an incredible experience throughout the entire process.”
Everything took longer on the bigger ship, explains Katie
Glaser said the learning experience at below deck Season 10 helped her grow as a sailor and she was excited to work on a ship of this size.
He really enjoyed “learning how the different big ship procedures work and really diving into it,” Glaser said. “Because being able to do all the physical work on deck was also one of my concerns. And I think being a woman on such a big ship was definitely something super cool and super exciting, but definitely something she wasn’t used to.”
Glaser explained that everything takes a little longer on a bigger ship than she’s used to. “When you are putting the slide when you do the springboard, it is on a larger scale,” he explained. “So, yes, it’s a lot more work and it takes a lot more time. So when you’re going to put things in a smaller boat, it doesn’t take as long. But obviously, on a smaller boat, you’re doing it with one or two other people. That was another amazing thing, being able to work with such a great team. I think it was super exciting because it’s something she’s never dealt with before.”
below deck It’s Monday at 8 pm ET on Bravo.
