Shamans actually cast spells, after a fashion, and need to memorize them
ahead of time. so they probably can.

Shai'ir's don't. The spell comes from the Gen, not the Shai'ir, so they
probably can't. OTH, they *can* purchase Series Helms built for Genies.
Depending on their level they could well have several genies on tap to pwer
them: Their Gen, the current bound genie, a tasked bodyguard (Guardian), a
tasked Wine maker (ship's cook), a tasked Builder (Ship's maintanence),  a
tasked Artist/craftsman (ships need furnature and decoration), at war, a
Warmonger, if the wives are on board a Harim Guard.

Not all would be available at all times, and he might have better uses for
some, but he can't use more than 5 at a time for the series Helms, and, in a
fight, most would see the guarding of the ship or their charge(s) as being
aided by escaping a fight, so it's not much of a problem, but the Winemaker
probably wouldn't sit a Helm often, and a Warmonger would rather charge
*into* a fight.
