As the pilot climbs the ladder, the pilot boat is pushed against the vessel by a wave and the pilot's leg is trapped. Despite the injury, the pilot makes it to the vessel with the help of a crew member.



The job of a pilot is always dangerous. This scenario can always happen in rough seas.

The exact date of the accident is not known, but it may have happened recently. Pilot was boarding cargo ship on approaches to Hualien port, eastern coast of Taiwan, in a fresh weather.

We do not put videos of accidents on our website out of voyeurism. We would like to point out that the work of a pilot is always dangerous, especially when embarking and disembarking!

These incidents should be a warning. It can hit anyone out of carelessness.

Video Failed overtaking of another ship in a canal - Port Revel Shiphandling

Found on YouTube. Created by "Port Revel". From 2014...

Manoeuvring large ships at close quarters and on shallow water is one of the most difficult aspects of shiphandling because of the complex hydraulic interactions depending on the ships' speeds, on the water depth and on lateral restrictions like in canals. Training is conducted both on meeting and on overtaking ships in shallow waters. This video shows how overtaking in a canal can easily fail.

Video Thunder Child II fly past in appreciation of our Front-line workers

At Safehaven Marine it was great to be able to launch a new pilot boat for the Port of San Ciprian in Spain after nearly 2 months of Lockdown. She was nearly finished at the start of the lockdown. It sure was nice to be on the water again, even with social distancing.

We wanted to do something nice to lift everyone's spirits during these challenging times around the World, so we did a fly past our home Port of Cobh in Thunder Child II (Safehaven’s Transatlantic record attempt vessel) in support of all our front-line workers, doctors and nurses, the coastguard, fire, ambulance and rescue services, police officers, port operatives, seamen, pilot boat crews and marine pilots, as well as all those involved in keeping the global supply chain working. Here’s a little video we made, the sound track of David Bowies ‘Heroes’ says it all!
