Re: Limits of Captains authority

Mark gets confused North of the equator on a few things. Down under a Commercial Captain is referred to as Master class IV or IV. A bit lower on the scale is the "coxswains" ticket. The engineer is called a MED I or II. Marine Engine Driver...
Some of the classes or requirements are so watered down I felt better off before taking them. Not sure I'm any more competent as a Master and a few grand poorer on worthless courses then I was as a simple captain with a lot of sea miles.
