Y'know, if they all got together on the bridge and, say, the helmsman had to get the attention of the ship's skipper, it might get a tad confusing.
Not at all. The helmsman probably knows the Captain's name, and is bright enough to use it in this situation.
There is also a 'officer of the deck', a OD, who the helmsman would report to if the skipper was in a conference.

I took the number of thirteen captains from a fact book titled "Carrier", the author was aboard the 'U.S.S. John F. Kennedy', at the time of that cruise there were thirteen naval officers on board with the rate of captain.

I should of used squadron, not wing. My bad.
