Skipper or Captian?
Friends*started calling me the Skipper dude years ago when most first got into boating.
Mostly because I have*always had a boat of one form or another. I knew more about the boating thing than others.
The handle kind of stuck.
Where I come from It is also used as a term of respect.
If you have your captian's license you can be called cap't.
On the radio or ashore. I call any boat owner Skipper or Skip for short
