The jet ski started to sink on the recent episode of Below Deck Med, sending Captain Sandy into a tailspin.

Fans know how crazy the captain is over the water toys. Captain Sandy beelines it to the deck to confront Malia, who defends her team, resulting in the captain calling Malia a liar in a confessional.

Malia used Instagram Stories to explain the jet ski issue and why she wanted to assess the situation before pointing fingers at her team. The bosun was not covering for anyone but simply wanted to carefully look into the problem first, especially since guests were around.

“Once we jumped in, checked the bungs, and knew that was the problem, there was a team meeting to find out who was accountable and how we as a team resolve it. No biggie for this deck crew,” she wrote.

Does Malia agree with Captain Sandy’s management style on Below Deck Mediterranean?

Season 6 has defeatedly showcased a different dynamic between the captain and the bosun than Season 5.

Malia was the teacher’s pet running to Captain Sandy with every little issue last season. This time around, Captain Sandy and Malia have already had one onscreen spat, with a heated fight still to come before Season 6 ends.

There has been some speculation editing did that on purpose because of all the fan backlash against them. However, Malia did admit their friendship was strained during filming because of the cameo video of the captain calling the bosun gay.

During an Instagram Stories Q&A, Malia was asked if she agrees with Captain Sandy’s management style.

“Not always. We all have different management styles, but she’s the captain, and I respect that. Until I’m in that position, I just have to observe and take notes,” the bosun replied.
