I think this is one of my favorite Marine Pilots' pictures of the year.
Very powerful. What a dynamic photo!
The moment was instantly caught by the photographer.

But is this a safe maneuver? Who is this Marine Pilot? Where was the picture taken? Who took the picture? What is the story behind?
Who knows more about it?
Let us know!

In my opinion, this maneuver is part of the job of a Marine Pilot. Every pilot has experienced such a moment.

What do you think?

Opinion The feel of the ship: The essence of Piloting

by Captain Ricardo Caballero "Themaritimepilot" - published on 3 June 2020

When I was a deck officer back in the early nineties I worked on a ship that used to load grain at different ports along the Mississippi river. The name of the ship was Golden Hope, a 600 feet long dry bulk carrier with a 95 feet in beam. An average size vessel for those days' standards.
