RE: Skipper or Captian?

The problem is not what to call folks ,

it is the clown that bought a Greek Captains hat since he got a 6 pack operators ticket , some weekend,

and demands to be known as Captain.

RE: Skipper or Captian?

I address lockmasters and bridge tenders as sir or ma'am. Although, sometimes from the voice it is hard to tell if it is a man or woman.

Phil, please explain something, I often wanted to ask, even before, in the PMM days, but never got round to it. Where does your nom de plume, Phil/Fill come from - from what is is derived, should I say...?

My first posts on PMM,*10+ years, had a lot of*grammar and spelling errors as I spell how it sounds. **Since then spell checkers has become popular and I have learned to cut, spell checker*and paste. Occasionally, when in a hurry my poor spelling/grammar comes out.

I contended that Webster was actually a poor speller but he published*HIS dictionary first so now we are stuck with it.The best dictionary are Bad Speller Dictionary and Instant Spelling Dictionary which where given/send to me by the PMM members at that time which I still use.*To me a regular dictionary is a waste*of time*because if*I do not know how to spell it how in the heck am I going to find it a big old dictionary?*******

So the name Phil/Fill.***

RE: Skipper or Captian?

I've been called a lot of things in my day, some of which I wish I hadn't heard

When I'm running* a commercial passenger vessel I hear Captain a lot, but I don't really care, still it makes it easier to identify who someone is addressing and is a sign of respect from the crew. On my own boat, the admiral calls me everything except captain, and when the Coast Guard hails me on the VHF it's as Skipper.* ...........Arctic Traveller
