First means 'good afternoon gentlemen' and second means 'good morning captain'.

If my spanish isn't all mixed up,
"buenos dias captain"
dias means day not morning, and the line is good day captain. I also believe that "tardes" is evening rather than afternoon.

"Buenos noches" means "good nights". Page 19, frame 5.
