“What a great night, thank you to all the fans who came out to see [Eddie Lucas], [Colin Macy-O’Toole], and [me],” Captain Lee captioned a series of pictures. “The meet and greet was full of laughter and memorable moments.”

At the event, Captain Lee shared his opinion of Eddie. The two have established a father-and-son bond over the years. During the Season 8 finale of Below Deck, Captain Lee gave Eddie new epaulets that featured three stripes. Eddie was promoted to the role of the first officer after earning his 1600-ton license.

At the Below Deck After Show, Eddie shared that that moment “choked me up a little bit.” Captain Lee said it was an easy decision. He feels that Eddie “earned his stripes” and grew up over the years. Their bond is still strong after all these years.
