New guidance for PBAs with trapdoors. Released 4.11.2020 at NZMPA Conference in Dunedin, NZ. Distinct difference to suggestions in many other countries, is that we challenge operators who have the ladder suspended from the accommodation ladder (gangway) and not secured to the ship. SOLAS states that pilot ladder shall be secured to the ship, and securing strongpoints, shackles and ropes shall be as strong as the sideropes.

Video Navigating a ship in italy with the guidance of a marine pilot
After crossing the Atlantic Ocean and entered in the Mediterranean sea it is time to call at Chioggia Italy in order to discharge our cargo. In this episode you will see the interaction that I have with the Marine Pilot and how we navigate the ship in these waters. Pilots are mandatory for our vessels and in every port that we call one or two come on board in order to provide us their guidance with their knowledge of the local water,winds, traffic, etc. Enjoy! #Pilotage #LNG #Navigating...
