    Captains of &c. aren’t included in the pretty exhaustive list of ranks and ratings in the 1889 “Watch, Station, Quarter, and Fire Bills &c. for the Use of Her Majesty’s Mastless Ships.” The parts of the ship then were Forecastle, Fore-top, Main-top and and Quarter-deck. The Mizzen-top part disappeared sometime between then and 1868.
