Ideas from Nasir Khan, Port Pilot: "I would like to suggest that we try an experiment and make some modifications that will result in a better grip on the handrails of the ship's ladder and on the pilot ladder steps. Let's talk about it!"

Modifications: Ships Ladder Handrails & Width of the Pilot Ladder steps.

At transfer point mostly pilots lose their grip on Ships Ladder handrails, especially at ships combination ladder extensions."
