They are not regulators and do not have warrant cards. In small ships they are from various branches according to the ship, don't know about boats though.
Cox'n's on boats are the ships policeman but, as has been said, they don't hold a warrant card. They are Senior Rate volunteers from any branch who have to pass a selection board (have to read AND write) and then go on to do Cox'n's course. When successfully completed they do time on a boat as a "makey learney" with a qualified cox'n before getting their own boat.
