What the Captain Said

gCaptain.com has a post of famous quotes from the man in command. Here are a selection:

Don’t turn the ship for any small vessel unless you see the fear of god in the boater’s eye while he’s frantically pulling his outboard’s rip-cord.

When asked the captain why he spends so much time in the office: There comes a time in most men’s careers when they stop being paid for what they do and start getting paid for what they know…. and by asking such a question of your Captain it’s clear to me that if you want a check next month you better go find a chipping hammer.

The Captain of an Ocean Tug to an AB having just come from supply boats in the Gulf: Son - You’re on a tug now! When we back up to a rig - it means we’re taking the motherf….r with us!

Cadet, whenever you see an aircraft carrier on the horizon just think of the theme song from Jaws and act accordingly.

Old Master to a young mate: I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.

I’m hitting the rack. Call anytime just remember… if you need me I don’t need you!
