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.

The #DangerousLadders campaign is a global initiative to improve the safety of pilot transfer arrangements and in particular the safe rigging of pilot ladders. As part of this campaign, Fidra Films have developed a series of informational and educational films to illustrate the dangers and also best practice.

Generously funded by the sponsors below, all of whom have an interest in the safety of maritime pilots, the series aims to reduce the incidence of non-compliant ladder arrangements, something that pilots face every day of their working lives.

Anyone with an interest in the subject of pilot transfer safety should join the #DangerousLadders Facebook group, where there is continual discussion and educational advice from the global pilotage community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/83176...

The development, production and distribution of this series is generously sponsored by:
DNV GL
GasLog
InterTanko
Northern Marine
PTR Holland
The Standard Club
Stolt Tankers

With support from the pilots at ABP Southampton and a vessel location supplied by Tarmac.
