Example of a passage and berthing plan
Graphics and text by Tim Cummins, Harbour Pilot / Assistant Harbour Master (Portsmouth International Ports

As part of a good Master-Pilot exchange (MPX) the passage plan and berthing plan is discussed with the bridge team.
This is important to enhance the safety of the vessel’s passage through the port and to improve co-operation between bridge team and pilot.


Here is the latest passage plan we use at Portsmouth International Port that we show to the Master’s of inbound and outbound ships.

We think it is a good thing to show us our passage and berthing plans to improve our work.

Opinion Scientific Fact: The ‘traditional’ understanding of the ship’s pivot point is wrong!

by Tim Cummins, Harbour Pilot, Portsmouth International Port - published

In fact, the pivot point that we “see” is a trick of the eye, it looks like the ship is rotating about this point but in fact it is elsewhere, a point that you cannot see.

Article A review of the ship’s pivot point: Science, Maths and Observation’ Where is the centre of a ship’s rotation?

by Tim Cummins, Harbour Pilot, Portsmouth International Port - published

This my attempt to do just that. This is a summary of all scientific papers and articles that I could find about the ship’s pivot point. I have added links to any videos associated with the publications and have also included any useful diagrams or equations that the authors published to help explain their research.

Editors Note:
For people in Europe and in the days of a general me-too debate, it may seem a little strange that a male captain meets a female pilot and seems to ignite a romance.

There must be many more female pilots, but cooperation on the bridge must be professional, especially from the male colleagues.
I am sure that the creators of the video want to show that it is unprofessional if the captain and the pilot do not fully concentrate on their important work.

by Marine-Pilots.com - published

Published on 5th June 2020. Author Capt. John Dolan says: "We would not recommend remote pilotage when the ship is berthing or unberthing. These operations require the presence and advice of an experienced pilot who has extensive local knowledge and who is usually assisted by port tugs."
