So Ladies, what is your take on this title that is so very difficult to obtain?

Yeah.. my son was called captain when we were on my boat at times.

It doesn't really bother me.. it's not like I'm into tonnage and charters but I makes me smile when I do hear; "captain"
You've obviously never heard of Molly Kool. Recently passed away. A real Captain and a legend in my home waters.

Molly Kool, 1st woman licensed as ship's captain in N. America - The Boston Globe
