Running time

If you're in the upper deck, you're a seaman but if you're a stoker. Never occurred with me, but I know some guys used to look down on stokers, and I know they wouldn't salute a stoker or an engineer officer. The officers were called engineers, not stoker officers ... Engineers' officers. A lot of guys wouldn't salute an engineer officer.
