They dont do the hard physical work, or seem to do much navigation work.

The Old British sailing ships all had a Cabin Boy, I guess like a butler on the ocean.

More like he was for the captain to sodomize because it was very bad luck to have a woman on board. The ship was considered the only female.

Why, to turn down your bed linens, place a mint nightly on your pillow top, and make those cute little animal images out of your cabin towels, of course.

"The cabin boy was Pippa,
What a naughty little nipper,
He filled his bum with chewing gun,
And vulcanized the skipper!

I think he picks up the Captain's soap when he drops it in the shower too.

Re: What actually are a Cabins Boy duty on a ship?
An attempt at a serious answer:

During the Age of Sail, the Captain of the ship was by default of a higher class than common sailors, or even officers.

As such, he required a personal servant who would clean and mend the captain's clothing, maintain his wig (gentlemen wore wigs then, and captains were gentlemen), polish his shoes, serve him at dinner, prepare his bath, help him shave and dress, and so on.

The cabin boy would also tend the cabin: Polish the brass and silver, trim the wicks of his lamps, change the bedding, clear up after dinner, dust, sweep, et cetera.

We're unused to the idea of servants any more, but at the time it would have been unthinkable for a captain not to have employed one. It was a full-time job.

The cabin boy executes surprise attacks upon the captain a la Katu in The Pink Panther.

The cabin boy was the Captain's servant. In the old days, the Captain need not have any marine experience or training, he could be a political appointee. The ship was sailed, navigated, maintained, and fought by the ship's Master and his Mates; who were not officers. Today only naval vessels have Captains, Merchant vessels have Masters and Mates. FYI
