The pilot boat is a 1979 Gladding and Hearn, think of it as a 70s muscle car on water. The Deep-V hull does a great job of cutting through the waves while giving us good speed and maneuverability. On to the next one...
Some parts are sped up to fit 60 seconds.

Video EMMA Extension – Smart fairway digitalization pilot in Saimaa
Found on YouTube. Created by "project_emma BSRP".
The smart fairway digitalization pilot is a part of the EMMA Extension project that is funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme. This summer, 34 smart buoys were installed in the Saimaa deep fairway, which is Finland’s most important inland waterway for merchant shipping.
Safety is enhanced in particular by the fact that the pilots and VTS can adjust the light output of beacons and the rhythm of lights to support the navigation of vessels in poor visibility and weather conditions. The light output can be adjusted in real time centrally by the VTS center and, if necessary, even with a tablet used by the pilot.
Remote-controlled signs send information about, among other things, the functionality of the light, the condition of the power supply, and the actual location of the sign. All this information improves the navigability of the fairway as well as increases maritime safety. Modern technology also reduces the carbon footprint, while location inspections of signs can be done more efficiently.
