Lunar Marines

As was noted earlier, there is a large difference between a riverine and an Ocean-going (or even sea-faring) fleet. The rivermen might have a few basic skills in the bag, which will make them nearer to sailors than your average Lunar grunt.

True. Which is why they wouldn't be wasted as assault troops aka marines, but be in charge of navigating the vessels.

Aye. There's a big difference between those skillsets, for sure. I gather the true meaning of marine is the Acronym

Marines
Always
Ride
In
Navy
Equipment.

According to the USMC, at least, but I can't see it having been very much different back in the days of Trireme and Pentekonter.
