Reason is an incident happened at the port of long beach in July 2020. Pilot ladder rope broke while the pilot was on the ladder - luckily the pilot was able to hold on.

"This is a Lakes Pilot hopping off the Huron Belle Pilot boat after we've pulled alongside the CSL Assiniboine on the Detroit River just above the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, MI
He walks along the side of the Pilot boat, holding onto the railing and then after the gangway from the ship is lowered into position, he steps up and pulls himself up to then begin walking up the gangway to the deck where he is greeted by the crew.
We then see one of the crew from the Pilot boat tieing up the Pilot's bag to send it aboard and I pan around to show you the area and how close we are to the ship before ending the video."

It’s not always calm seas, helicopters and fast speedboats. In the third weekend storm this year, the pilot embarks MV VERA D by fast launch craft of the Pilot Station Vessel PROCYON. It takes professional teamwork by Pilotboat crew, the ship VERA D and VTS to board these ships in the harshest conditions in a violent Northsea. Well done and thanks to all players involved!

Video Christening of new pilot tender "Mira"
Christening of new pilot tender "Mira" - a lightweight powerhouse
Press Release Hoek van Holland, 2 April 2020 by Next Generation Shipyards
On Thursday 2 April, Annebel de Deugd (interim manager fleet management of Nederlands Loodswezen), christened the new Dutch pilots’ tender Mira; one of the lightest tenders in the Nederlands Loodswezen fleet.
Lighter than ever
The instructions given by Nederlands Loodswezen to ship designer Camarc and shipbuilder Next Generation Shipyards had been clear: design and build a strong, waterjet driven, aluminium pilot tender that is much lighter than her predecessors. Mira weighs around 39 metric tons, whereas her predecessors weigh around 54 tons. Because of the lower weight, considerably less fuel is needed, which means the ship will emit less CO2 and soot. This makes her less harmful to the environment.
A class of its own
Mira - an M-class pilot tender - has the same hull as her L-class predecessors but is equipped with a so-called axe bow. This alone results in fuel savings of 3%. In addition, every single part of the ship’s design has been subject to careful examination to reduce weight as much as possible. Managing Director Willem Bentinck of Nederlands Loodswezen explained, "In total, Mira is about 15 tons lighter than her predecessors. This is equivalent to the weight of two adult elephants; you can imagine what a difference this weight loss makes in fuel consumption". The total fuel consumption of Mira is more than 20% lower than that of the L-class tenders, resulting in a significant reduction of CO2.
Nederlands Loodswezen’s fleet expansion is a multi-year investment programme. The fleet includes 15 waterjet driven tenders that are used for pilot embarkation/disembarkation to serve seagoing ships calling at Dutch seaports and at Flemish seaports on the River Scheldt. The new tender Mira will replace one of the Discovery class tenders now that they have reached their maximum lifespan.
Remark in times of COVID-19:
Due to the regulations concerning the Corona pandemic, the christening was held in presence of only a few people.
