Q: Query on Crew lists Not keying ship masters - does that mean 'Shipping Master' or Master - the latter presumably usually the first person on each crew listing? I presume the first of those as I can't see the point of not keying the crew's Master.

A: We are not keying the Ship Master from the header of the record - we are keying their name if listed along with the crew.
