Denise, my experience has been more as Tom describes; in the past 10 months on VHF and docking, I've been addressed as either ma'am or Cap'n almost 100% of the time. It's been one of my favorite things about the South ... well, that and blackened grilled fish ...

Seriously tho......

I do know of a few women that "ARE" "Captains" in there own right. Including two that brought/bring boats.....well, "ships" into puget sound! then took them out later to the entrance to the st of juan de fuca only to hop off onto a smaller 20' somthing, then hop onto a ladder or equal and bring another "ship" into port!

Boy do we hate when the male refers to his wife as the Admiral. Its so condescending. When do you ever hear a male refer to his female counterpart as the Captain. She is always the Admiral (YUK). I don't want to be no freakin Admiral. I am the CAPTAIN! LOL, I guess that's why I'm single....

SHE refers to herself as the admiral too! SHE was the first to call me the cabin boy! maybe you should not read into things as you think they are. Reality is, we do what we ea can do best on the boat, as it should be!

along with, in our YC directory, SHE is listed as captain, I am 1st mate, 2 or maybe 3 others in the club are listed this way, the others are male captain, female 1st mate, Kind of fun to have folks call one or the others cell, and think they are getting the other. along with the SHE owns the boat, not me!

I was hoping not to get into the anger side of gender politics on boats.

Where do you sail out of on the Bay? Kind of boat you have?

I like "skipper" better. It's my boat and I'm in charge, but I think "captain" implies a sort of hierarchy I'm not that comfortable with. Also, though I have ASA certificates, I don't have any sort of tonnage captain's license.

I too have had the experience here in Florida that all the bridge keepers refer to me as "Captain". I don't mind - it's clearly a manners and respect thing.

I used to go with this woman that liked being referred to as Captain, until something when wrong and someone would ask who the Captain was...then she would point at me.
