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

published on 19 September 2019

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! :)

We have reached Port Said at the northern end of the Suez Canal. Could not have been a more enjoyable adventure. Thank you Suez Canal Authority for the two excellent pilots, specially Emad, and the support specially at Ismailia.
Editor's note:
Other countries, other habits: especially when it comes to safety standards. Life jackets, for example, are not to be seen here.

Video Welcome to Driver's Ed...For Supertankers

published on 2 October 2019

It turns out that supertankers and cruise ships have valets. They're called maritime pilots, and they're among the most elite ship handlers in the world. So where does one go to learn how to park the largest ships in the world? To the Maritime Pilots Institute in Covington, La. There, they use mini-versions of the behemoth boats to teach the basics. All aboard!
