What is the Bosun's Pipe or Boatswain's Call? For starters, the Boatswain, or Bosun, is in charge of the deck crew. The Bosun's Pipe, sometimes referred to as a Boatswain's whistle, is infamously known for its shrill sound, which can be heard over the noise of high winds and heavy seas and is used for signaling the crew.
