Re: Limits of Captains authority

Once had crew that couldn't stand watch properly. First night fell asleep, nearly getting us run down. Second night, couldn't recognize a collision course, nearly getting us run down. He was relieved of all watch duty. Captain (licensed)and I took over all watches, no more near collisions.

One authority captains don't have: to make an incompetent crew competent.
