Me I just hate titles. One of the reasons I sail by myself or with just a very small crew is to keep away from all that bs. If I ever was on a boat where the skipper expected to be called Captain I'd be off at the first opportunity. A large ship, different story I realise but then again I know I would not have been a success in the military.
