The Bideford Pilot with Roger Hoad & the crew of Two Rivers II
A short film about the Bideford Pilot. Part of the Boat Stories North Devon series.
Note the calm and skilful team work as the pilot boat crew head out night and day, winter and summer over the notorious Bideford bar to meet big ships out at sea, get the pilot on board and escort the ships safely up river into Bideford, Appledore or Yelland harbour.
Filmed & edited by Matt Biggs - Artaura Productions. Music composed & produced by Tom Watkins - Yard 1 Studios. Directed & produced by Jo Stewart-Smith

Video Volvo Penta – Mighty Jobs – Piloting the Arctic seas of Norway
In this episode of Mighty Jobs we meet the piloting crew of Buksér og Berging in Tromsø, Norway. Their Volvo Penta-powered piloting boat covers around 42,000 nautical miles every year. That’s the equivalent of traveling around the world twice. The Volvo Penta IPS system makes it possible to pilot ships under all weather conditions.
Video How not to climb down a Pilot Ladder
The video was found on some social media channels in June 2020.
When so many elementary mistakes are made and so many risks are taken, this is exactly what can happen!
It's a demonstrative example of an unprofessional action:
1) Where is the life jacket?
2) No backpack on the shoulders. Use a rope to have the backpack lifted by the deck crew.
3) Where is the rest of the crew (on vessel / on the small boat) for safe assistance?
What other mistakes have you discovered?
We do not put videos of accidents on our website out of voyeurism. We would like to point out that the work of a pilot or a seafarer is always dangerous, especially when embarking and disembarking!
These incidents should be a warning. It can hit anyone out of carelessness.
Dear people, please always be mindful and always think of your safety!
We hope no one was seriously injured.
Video Time Lapse: Pilotage of an inbound LNG Carrier, Port of Rotterdam
Time Lapse Video: An inbound LNG carrier arrives at the Port of Rotterdam. At sea, in the Eurogeul channel, two maritime pilots have joined the vessel. Between the breakwaters four harbour tugs (Smit Harbour Towage) make fast to assist her manoeuvre. In the Beerkanaal channel the LNG carrier is stopped and swung before entering the Nijlhaven harbour. While approaching LNG Jetty 1 the ship's mooring lines are taken ashore by mooringboats (Koninklijke Roeiers Vereeniging Eendracht).
