Spanish/Portuguese term for Captain of Emergencies in the Age of Sail?

Years ago, someone from Portugal mentioned a concept and position on large European seafaring boats, who was on the boat to ward off disaster, or to take the helm if one occurred. They said there was a word in Portuguese for this concept - someone who is prized for being able to rescue catastrophic situations. Does anyone know this word or concept? [more inside]

Can you help me find Spanish-language songs covered in Portuguese, and Portuguese-language songs covered in Spanish? Bonus points if the singers and songs are Latin American, and if the songs are available on YouTube or Spotify. [more inside]

How are Spanish and Portuguese different when it comes to grammar?

How are Spanish and Portuguese different when it comes to grammar?

I speak Spanish fluently and now want to to take up Brazilian Portuguese. From hearing my Brazilian friends speak, and generally understanding them pretty well, I figured that Spanish and Portuguese grammar (syntax) must be very similar, the only differences between the languages being vocabulary and pronunciation. How right am I? If there are syntactic differences, what are they?

Would any speakers of these languages care to comment?
