The spinoff series, which premiered in 2016, seemingly found a permanent crew member in chief stew Hannah Ferrier. The Australia native appeared in five seasons of the hit reality series before her feud with Captain Sandy Yawn reached a boiling point.
After bosun Malia White reported her roommate for having Valium and a CBD vape pen in her cabin, Sandy fired Hannah. The controversial decision led to a back and forth between the former coworkers when cameras were no longer rolling.
“I sometimes feel with [Sandy] … that she’s not honest with herself. Like she says, like, ‘Oh, it wasn’t personal,’ like, the firing. I was like, ‘It’s kind of funny because Kat [Held] had prescription meds that Captain Lee had found out about and she didn’t get fired,'” Hannah exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2021 about where the duo stands now. “There wasn’t a need to fire me for that. It was a hundred percent personal, but I guess whatever helps you sleep at night.”
Sandy, for her part, didn’t rule out a possible reconciliation in the future. “Hannah doesn’t want any part of me [but] I’m happy for her in everything that she’s doing. Honestly I’ve never had a feeling of hate. It doesn’t live in my heart,” the Florida native explained to Us in July 2022. “If Hannah ever opened the door, of course [I would get back in touch. There was a relationship there. I’m sorry that there’s not, but I mean, what can I do? I living my life. She’s living hers.”
