My situation is probably different - when I work as a captain, everyone calls me captain. I assume you're talking about being on your own boat with your husband though.

I defer to the person who owns the vessel/knows more about seamanship or that boat, but I don't know how any person who also owns the boat and is just as skilled can tolerate others not considering her to be equally in command.
