The paper is based on the research of material from the Archivio di Stato di Venezia (material on Venetian navy – Provveditori all’Armar). Scientific analysis focuses on Captain Josip Balović of Perast in Boka, commander of Venetian war ships Agile and Forza in the second half of the 18th century. In the introduction, general data regarding the share of Croatians in Venetian units, as well as the importance of the Balović family in the navy history of Boka and the Eastern Adriatic, are explained. The central part of the paper offers a thorough analysis of the crews of the ships Balović was personally in command of, while special attention is paid to the origin of crew members, in particular if they were born in the eastern Adriatic region. Depending on each of the two ships Balović was in command of, the crews are analysed according to the division in several basic groups: officers, noncommissioned officers and holders of specialised posts on board (Uffiziali e Titolati); first-cass sailors (Marineri prima classe); second-cass sailors (Marineri seconda classe); third-cass sailors (Marineri terza classe); and deck han- ds (Mozzi). Enclosed to the paper, there are lists of crew members on Agile and Forza at the time of Josip Balović’s commandership.
