You can see I understand my place in this heirarchy. Red Charlotte has this situation worked out as well I suspect. I read in some other post that a proper uniform is a speed ticket to clearing in in some places.

We have an Annapolis nephew grad and a West Pointer nephew grad who say they don't feel compelled to salute.

Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

I just pulled my cover out of the closet and my brass is tarnished green. That would have gotten me demerits from an upperclassman that was young enough to be my son during my academy days. I did get demerits for a belt buckle that wasn't shiny enough.

Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

You got that right, Nicholson58... Checking in and out of Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica, I always had a shower, clean shirt and put on my cover and bars and usually went to the head of the line at Migration or the Port Captain office. The rest of the yachties sitting there in torn shorts and T shirt, 6 days growth and smelling like old cheese are probably still sitting there.
Foreign Port Officers are proud of their country and their station in life and expect to be respected. If you don't show a little deference to their position in your appearance, they can be difficult to deal with at times. Just common courtesy IMO. Capt Phil

Hey now, there's been no call to go off like that and insult old cheese.

Oh Bob, A man after my heart.

On the drill ships (rigs) no, and I don't understand why. I've never met a woman in the maritime disciplines that couldn't do the job as well, if not better, than the men. When at CMA, a fellow midshipman became the first female Captain of the Corps, her name was Sadie, and except for some knuckle dragging Neanderthals, she had our total respect. I lost touch with her, and wonder what she is doing now.

Also, if the officers aboard the Exxon Valdez had listened to their female midshipman (from CMA) telling them the navigation lights were on the wrong side of the tanker, they wouldn't have fouled those pristine waters.
