Shareable Survey "Boarding and Landing Arrangements for Pilots" by Ewan Rattray
This survey on pilot ladder safety was initiated by Ewan Rattray.
It is supported and recommended by well-known heads of the #dangerousladders Facebook group like Kevin Vallance, Arie Palmers and others.

Ewan was badly injured boarding a vessel as a Pilot in 2018. He is still employed in the ports industry and is particularly passionate regarding pilot safety. With this in mind, he is using his maritime experience and academic skills to conduct much-needed research into the boarding and landing of pilots. The research requires the collection of empirical data for which he is using a survey. The data will be used to analyse the effectiveness of the current legislation - relating to the boarding and landing of pilots - and to identify any failures in the practical and regulatory process. By obtaining professional views, it will help to develop and support a hypothesis, and the findings can be used to form recommendations for improvement.

"The purpose of this survey is to collect data relating to the boarding and landing of pilots. The data will be used to analyse the effectiveness of the current legislation - relating to the boarding and landing of pilots - and to identify any failures in the practical and regulatory process. By obtaining professional views, it will help to form and support a hypothesis, and the empirical data can be used to form recommendations for improvement."

"Owing to the nature of the survey, and the need for verifiable data, the survey should only be completed by persons involved in the boarding and landing of Pilots; For example, Deck Officers, Deck Ratings, Pilots, Harbour Officials, Vessel Managers or Surveyors. The survey focuses on boarding and landing of pilots from a pilot boat only, and not by helicopter."

"The survey is 100% anonymous, and the data will be incredible valuable in the fight against non-complaint boarding arrangements."


Marine-Pilots.com supports this campaign and wants to spread it through the large pilot community.
Please help everyone to gather more data, facts and figures on the safety of pilot ladders.
We hope to publish the results of the survey in the near future.
Please share this article with your fellow pilots and friends via WhatsApp, Facebook, LinkedIn or the Twitter share button.

The more pilots that participate, the more meaningful the results will be!

Video Video Interview with Capt Karanjikar, Founder President AIMPA

Found on YouTube. Created by "The Shipping Tribune".
All India Marine Pilot Association has been formed by a Group of Mariners who care for "safety and security" of the Marine Pilots.

Although a lot of our Indian seafarers felt the dire need of such a body, it was only after the unfortunate and untimely demise of Capt V P Gupta following his fall from the ladder on 8th August 2019, that pilots and like-minded individuals started expressing their displeasure about the 'Eco-system'. Capt. Virendra Mishra, C.E.O., The Shipping Tribune, had the opportunity to interview Capt. Gajanan Karanjikar, Founder President- All India Marine Pilots Association (In Formation).

The interview focused on the following issues:
1. The association has started with the aim of improving the entire eco system of pilot boarding arrangements. How do you plan to achieve this?
2. One of the policies of AIMPA is "Reform the pilot recruitment & licensing " Pls tell us about the reforms you intend to bring.
3. The main objective is "Safety & security of the pilots". Have you done any survey with pilots what are their existing concerns about safety & security?
4. There is a need for data collection for accidents and near misses. How will the association ensure this mammoth task with all major and non majors ports and terminals?
5. What role maritime administration can play in your opinion to minimise the risk and threat to the safety of pilots?

Video In respect of the vessel: Stellar Banner Scuttled Off Brazil

Found on YouTube. Created by "Gabrie Jorge".

Notice by the Editor of Marine-Pilots.com:
"The sight of a sinking ship should always make us humble because it helps us to realize how small man is compared to the thousands of tons of steel a ship is made of - and how pale we are in comparison to the great power of the sea.

Ships may have a soul, as they have names as well...

Their end therefore should make us sad. There´s no fun or joy in watching this.”


The vessel was refloated earlier this month following the removal of approximately 145,000 metric tons of iron ore from the vessel’s holds. Due to the condition of the ship, the decision was made to sink the vessel in deeper waters with any remaining iron ore on board. Authorities said they do not believe the remaining iron ore poses a threat to the marine environment.

Opinion Piloting, Autonomous Vessels, AI, and the coffee making machine

by Captain Ricardo Caballero "Themaritimepilot" - published

I am not a computer savvy. My knowledge in programming and robotics and those sort of things is nil. I get lost in the sea of social media and easily entangle myself in the web. All I have done for the last 25 years or so is to pilot ships through the Panama Canal. However, during the last couple of years I have done my best to catch up with technology, since it has enhanced our possibilities and improved safety in our field. But still, I have to admit that I am way behind the new guys in this important issue.
