History of Quebec for Dummies by Eric Bedard, published by John Wiley & Sons, Canada, Ltd.
Joseph was a navigateur.
The navigateur, or navigator, was the person on board a ship responsible for its navigation — a set of tasks to determine the position of a boat or ship and the route to follow. The navigator's primary responsibility was to be aware of the ship's position at all times.

On the high seas, he had to be skilled in long-term forecasting in order to make the best possible decisions depending on the weather.
