flondrix: DrunkWithImpotence: It was one of the few offices you couldn't buy back then. Rarely, someone would come from "before the mast" to get promoted up, otherwise, the only way to become a naval officer was to spend some years as a midshipman, learning navigation and ship handling et cetera. Then you took a test in front of some senior captains. If they passed you, you weren't an officer but you were at least eligible for promotion. Next step was to find a captain willing to take you on as a junior Lieutenant.But could you apprentice to be a Pilot?
