I don't have one! But my wife has something close. Here she is at the helm:

From Sucia - Feb 2009


It does need a little anchor on it.

No one (in general) just sees and beleives that female is the captain. which is the point I'm trying to make.
Anyway I see your point. The command structure on our boat isn't particularly formal. However, when Anna gives orders, they are obeyed.

Hi Denise, I'm baffled to report that ANY time I've been on the VHF here in the South (Carolinas, Georgia, Florida) with bridges or marinas, they've called me "Cap'n," even though I'm the Admiral. Whazzup wi' that?

BTW, Dan is "skipper."

Another well known female captain...

Captain Linda Greenlaw, of Isle au Haut, Maine, became widely known as captain of the Hannah Boden, which survived “The Perfect Storm” in Sebastian Junger's best-selling novel. Captain Greenlaw had the last known contact with the Andrea Gail, a swordfish boat from Massachusetts, that sank with all hands, in the Halloween storm 1991.

Greenlaw was considered by her peers to be one of the best large commercial fishboat captains on the American east coast is also a best-selling author (The Hungry Ocean, Lobster Chronicles, All Fishermen are Liars, The Fisherman's Bend)

I've always thought you subtly dignified your hogship sir.

Well your dignity is certainly subtle anyway.

You know, I reckon there should be one of those emoticon thingys to represent a servile tugging of the forelock.

Great and funny discussions here.. While the intent of this is to show how far society has accepted us females as capt of our own vessels, with some tongue and cheek sayings, I think it really depends on the vessel if a male is present vs only a female(s).
My own personal experience in both as a Captain in commercial aviation and Marine are the same. As long as male is present most people think the male counterpart is the master of the vessels. This leads to speaking, asking questions, inquires and general assumptions of who is in charge of said vessel/aircraft to the male present. Even with 4 strips on my shoulders, Captains hat on, passengers, agents, mechanics at times think I am a flight attendant at worse and the co pilot at best until things happen to make it apparent that I am in charge. It is fun to watch peoples faces who thought I was one of the above, to the Captain in charge. I find in the marine environment about the same if I happen to have a male on my boat. If I am sailing solo (97%) of the time, I find most folks don't have a problem calling me Capt or mam.
