This chapter assesses the role of shipmasters and ship-owners in the Age of Sail and describes the division of responsibilities between the two. It discusses the overall management system of long-distance Finnish shipping, which was similar to the management systems of other European countries including Sweden, Norway and elsewhere, and presents a study of the skills and characteristics of owners in comparison to the skills of shipmasters. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the effectiveness of the system in place.
