Captain's the one with not just the ownership of the boat, but the responsibility for the boat and its crew. Captain calls the shots.
It gets bit tricky when I am asked to skipper someone else's boat. I tell them that if they are not comfortable with what I am doing, let me know.
In this thread skipper/owner = one person.
