CNCo Master Seniority List of December 1949
The title of CNCo 'Commodore' is a purely ceremonial recognition given to the longest serving Master in the fleet. As the image here demonstrates it was possible to reach the number one spot on the seniority list and become 'Commodore' without having the longest service. Length of service as 'Master' was the determining factor.

A complete list of CNCo Commodores is not known. It is indeed possible that at the end of the 19th century there was a 'Commodore' for both river and coastal vessels. We may never know.
