Here's my understanding. If you have a RRO license, anyone on the boat may used the VHF under your supervision. If they violate any laws or regs, you will be strung up from the yardarms and keel-hauled by the FCC, along with the perpetrator.
That sounds about right. In Amateur Operation anyone can operate a radio at my station under my supervision using my privileges so they can talk to anyone anywhere (within regulations) on any of the bands I can use.

If my wife is the "control operator" then they can only use her privileges.

If my wifes wants to operate our station under my privs then she has to give both callsigns in the form of "this is KB0IRW/N0NJY" etc. So she has to identify her license class, then identify that I am there "supervising".

I know all this has little to do with Marine radio, but if you're going to operate in the ham bands those rules apply to to that operation.

Nope; but there’s the apocryphal story of the FCC official who cited a traffic cop (who gave him a speeding ticket) for operating a radio transmitter without a license.

Ok, now that's just darn funny.

I have a story like that, but I'll save it for another time (I was involved in the incident and the officer later was pretty embarrassed though, so it was hilarious at the time )
