It is also pertinent to note, IMO, that the Chief Officers on HAL ships have Master's license. They are second in command and should a captain become ill or incapacitated while at sea, the Chief Officer steps in. Chief Officers have a great many responsibilities many of us automatically assign to Captain.

Many of the Chief Engineers also have Master's license..... I was really interested to have just learned this not that long ago.
