Mensagem: 

Hello Mada!

 

I work in a seismic survey vessel named WG Cook with almost 60 crewmembers from 23 nationalities and the (OOW) Oficcers on Watch refer to the ships as "her" My Captain is Norwegian and was also a aircraft pilot, the chief mate is Indian and the 2nd mate is Polish. I can guarantee "her" is still used. I hear that every single day.

 

Regards,
