Kate Chastain Unmasks the ‘Mythical’ Crew Member Who Fixes Everything on Valor in ‘Below Deck’
In a video with the crew member himself, Kate Chastain from Below Deck revealed who is behind those incredible improvements on the yacht.
Viewers of Below Deck will recall Darrian, Valor’s engineer, who expertly repaired the damaged kitchen fan during a steamy season 7 charter. He arrived silently with his tools and managed to turn on the fan, presumably saving the crew from heatstroke. Darrian recently reconnected with Chastain, and the two discussed another element of his employment, which caught Chastain off guard.
‘Below Deck’ is a film about a group of people who Darrian, a Valor engineer, used to get up at 2 a.m. for ice.
Because she couldn’t believe the effort, Chastain had to reveal a covert maintenance move Darrian had made. “’I awoke one night in the middle of the night at 2 a.m…..’” Chastain posted a photo to Instagram. “@darry 10 is a far better time/story teller than I am a sailboat engineer. But, in reality, M/y Valor would have sunk without him.”
Darrian stated in the video Chastain uploaded with the article, “The ice, what about the ice.” “Wow, you’re the best engineer I’ve ever met. And one night, I awoke at 2 a.m., in the middle of the night. ‘Darrian, what are you up to?’ I said. “Um, I get up, I set an alarm to refill the ice machine,” you say.
