I need some help with the word m-a-n-s as used in this sentence. This is a verbatim transcript and the speaker put the s on the word man.

Should it be: He's the one that mans the station.
He's the one who mans the ship.

verb, transitive
manned, manning, mans
1. To supply with men, as for defense or service: man a ship.
2. To take stations at, as to defend or operate: manned the guns.
3. To fortify or brace: manned himself for the battle ahead.
