Before 1956, our captains were already in the position working on board the merchant vessel since 1928, by that time, there were some associations exist: Association of Navigator of China Merchant Vessel (ANCMV); China Seaman’s Club (ASC); Association of Radio Operator (ARO), with association’s name but actually was in union purpose. After Second World War, Government merged ANCMV and ARO to The name “Association of Officers of China Merchant Vessel” in Shanghai. After the government was withdrawn to Taiwan on 1949, they refused complicate and rejected captains’ leaving for another association, although in international environment, most adopted the logic: Labour is different with Owner, Captain is somewhat an Ownership’s position.

This Association was under progressed at 20th of December in 1957. Back in 1956, the action which became a exclude association was raised by Captain Y. J. Sa (沙允仁); Captain S. Y. Gou (顧錫元) and other 56 Captains who working on merchant vessel, basic on the logic state above. For year’s effort, Government finally approved and set up this association at 27th of April of 1958.
