Default SH4 Special Abilities Help

To get some special abilities, try this:
Write down name of key personnel in each of the sub rooms, fwd torpedo, engine room, etc. Close game. Go to the SH4 folder in C:/ My Docs. Go to MyDocs/SH4/Data/cfg/SaveGames/00xxxxxx (the last saved game file by date & time.) Open and look for ActivePlayerUnits.upc. ( I save the original in a temporary folder just in case I need it). Use Control+F to look up the name of key pesonnel. The "SpecialAbilities=" line will have no expert or specialist listed. Go to the section below it where Special Abilities are listed. Copy Special Abilitiy wanted and paste it to the SpecialAbility line above so it reads SpecialAbilities=PropulsionSpecialist (for example). The Abilities are room specific i.e PropulsionSpecialist in engine room. Save the file as ActivePlayerUnits.upc. For realistic Propulsion go to the main game root in C:/Ubisoft/Silent Hunter Wolves of the Pacific & look up SpecialAbilities.upc and change the AbilityValue for [SpecialAbility7] to -41, -5 for realistic propulsion only & resave. Post reply if it works.

What are the Captain's Special Abilities and how do you get them? There seems to be some screen over by the Captain's Log but for me it is just blank even though in one career I am in mid 1944.
