Three mates

Triple Duty

R/V Neil Armstrong chief mate Derek Bergeron, second mate Mike Singleton, and third mate Josh Woodrow (left to right) monitor nearby boat traffic as Woodrow steers up the Hudson River during a port call in New York City earlier in the summer. In addition to standing regular watches on the bridge, each mate also performs a specialized role on the ship: the chief mate is the ship's medical officer, the second mate is responsible for navigation, and the third mate is the safety officer.
