    The "drivers" are all almost exclusively Boatswain's Mates. Crew will include a boat engineer (Machinery Technician), and a "crewman" that could be any rating or even a non-rate (E-1 to E-3).

    Outside of that, the new ME rating may be involved, but we haven't hashed through the creation of that rating completely yet (soon, though!!)

    Most likely Gunner's Mate or Boatswains Mate, although port security rates might get a chance to try it.
