This is how a pilot used to get off a fairly large ship!!!
Old clip of tv program showing 72yo pilot "disembarking" from a cargo ship off Porto de Aracaju, in the NE coast of Brazil. After the jump, there is 2-hour-plus swim to get back to the beach. It is in Portuguese, but all will understand...
Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VszrWX8g6Ik

Cheers

Video Pilot Boat - Carnival Cruise at Port Canaveral

This is a video of the cruise ship pilot boat that picks up the pilot once he has navigated the ship out of the port. This is a requirement of all cruise ships coming into and leaving out of ports. We also noticed them at the Bahamas. I was able to capture this one on my last cruise leaving out of Port Canaveral... watch as the pilot jumps from the cruise ship to the pilot boat while both are moving! :)
