Judy,

Among many on a ship (or boat, depending on the type of vessel), Chief Boatswains Mate has another name - GOD. I can guarantee you I was never one, but was certainly taken to task by enough of them. Technically, all officers outrank them. Realistically, very few officers are stupid enough to talk down to them. About the only thing scarier than a CBM is a Senior or Master Chief BM. What did you need to know?
