Walking the right pilot boat side: Perfect disembarking


published on 14 June 2021 1072

Editors note:
Exemplary manoeuvre: The pilot should always walk on the side of the pilot boat facing away from the vessel. This prevents the pilot from being trapped between the two vessels in the event of a fall into the water.

Jet propulsion and a "pilot scoop" at the stern are also exemplary!
