Rhylee Gerber, a deckhand on the Bravo TV show Below Deck Tahiti, will appear at the Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.

Gerber appeared in season six of the Bravo show. She has spent the last several years working aboard charter fishing vessels in her home state of Alaska. Her season on Below Deck was her first foray into the world of yachting.

“My favorite thing about being on the show was being in Tahiti,” said Gerber in a statement. “I got to experience another side of boating that I was not accustomed to. It is vastly different than fishing.”

Described as a force to be reckoned with, Gerber moved up in her career and became a captain in 2015.

Gerber, originally from Alaska, has ties to the area. She moved across the country in the 1990s with her mother and stepfather and went to high school in Fernandina Beach, where her parents owned a bed and breakfast. She attended Flagler College in St. Augustine and had a restaurant in Ortega, which she owned with her former fiancé.

She made friends within the local fishing community and got to know several of the fishing hot spots. Gerber said she has a soft spot in her heart for the area and considers it her second home.

The Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show, presented by Yamaha and produced by JBM & Associates, takes place at the Metropolitan Park and Marina April 5-7.
