Don't know about the Aye, always thought it was stupid myself. I was in the Navy on a 688. As far as calling them by rank, I think it is just to avoid confusion, and to show respect.

Wonder if the term originates from the days of the British Navy from where our Navy was born? Aye being a version of "yes sir".
