by Maritime Innovation Center Chile
This physical ladder simulator was design for crew training in the ladder arrangement and for all the users especially for pilots.
We think that it will be a very important complement for IMO Assembly Resolution A.1045(27) and SOLAS, Chapter V, Safety of Navigation, Regulation 23.
It was present in the 10th Latin-American Pilot Forum in Montevideo in September 2019.

Video Successful 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 should be conducted: come in close to the stern and then move away from the bow that will be sucked towards your ship.
