A crew is the group of people who man a ship or vessel.
In the Tri-Island area, the usual crew consists of a Captain and three subordinates. Though more powerful crews can be larger and it is not unknown for ships to set sail with less.
A crew is led by a Captain.
The Captain will usually have a second in command known as the First Mate.
Usually the first mate is also the ships Navigator, though this can be a role taken by a seperate individual.
A ship will usually assign one member of the crew to be Cook.
A Cabin Boy is usually a younger recruit whose duties are generally that of a dogsbody and cleaner, though they may be personal assistant to the captain.
Together, they searched for the fabled treasure Big Whoop.
The fearsome pirate LeChuck sailed for many years before becoming an undead menace. Over the years the members of his crew have changed a number of times.
After LeChuck became a ghost, he filled the ranks of his crew mainly by killing pirates and forcing their undead spirits and bodies to serve him in death.
Guybrush Threepwood has captained a number of crews.His first command was his rescue attempt after Governor Elaine Marley was kidnapped. His crew consisting of Meathook, Carla the Swordsmaster and Otis mutinied, leaving Threepwood to take the roles on Navigator and Cook himself.
On his quest to cure his wife of the curse he accidentally placed on her, he took on the help of the staff of the Barbery Coast. They proved to be little more help than his original command.
When Threepwood became captain of the Screaming Narwhal his sole crew member was the previous captain Reginald Van Winslow. Winslow became first mate and navigator and proved to be of more worth than the previous crews combined.
