Captain Tyler McLaughlin continued with the show even after his first mate and best friend Duffy passed just a few days before Season 8's filming began.
Tyler decided to choose his sister Marissa to fill the role of the first mate because she had a captain's license and was more than qualified.
In the National Geographic video, Tyler was heard saying, I'm scared I could burn out this season, so I'm relying on Marissa to be a great first mate and she still has a lot to learn. But she now holds a captain's license and can navigate with the radar reading ability.
