The new world's largest container ship Ever Ace arrives to the Port of Felixstowe on her maiden voyage to Europe with a maximum draught 13 metre with an even keel from her last port of Hamburg.

The Harwich Haven Pilot Launch leaves Harwich around 3am with a pilot to board at the Sunk Pilot Station out in the North Sea.  At about 4am, the pilot launch meets the Ever Ace and boards for the inward journey.   


After a short while, the pilot radios Harwich VTS to confirm he was onboard with a maximum draught of 13 metres even keel inbound for Felixstowe Berth 9 port side to.     VTS replies that there was a ready berth planned port side to Felixstowe Berth 9 and continued with the wind on the Landguard gauge and height of tide.   The pilot replies that he would like 4 tugs for berthing. 2 outside 2 inside with the water display as they enter the harbour.  First to meet at 7&8 buoys to make fast centre lead aft, second before the Platters for push indirect around the corner then around port side to push round before going around to starboard side to push up to the berth. Third inside the harbour at the Beach End to make fast centre lead forward on a bow to bow. Fourth would be doing a welcome salute then to push on the starboard shoulder for the swing.

The pilot radios VTS to say that they would be making a slow inward journey so they would arrive in the harbour around 06:20 for all the spotters who gathered around the viewpoint to see her arrive.  She steady proceeds inbound  via the deep water channel at about 5.7 knots most of the way. Svitzer Deben makes fast centre lead aft  onto a bollard with a safe working load of 146 tons, Svitzer Shotley escorts on the starboard quarter then around to the Port quarter for swing then back around to the starboard side to push up alongs.  Svitzer Sky makes fast centre lead forward, Svitzer Kent gives the a welcome salute with their fure hydrant. Once they have finishes with the welcome salute they push up on starboard shoulder for the port swing for Felixstowe Berth 9.
Final tie up 6,2,2 each end with springs lines first then offshore lines

As A Mississippi River Pilot (Retired 39 year service), an as most pilots around the world, we love a challenge,the biggest, down by head, dead ships, head down in 5kt current , heavy traffic situations and on!
AreThe Super Ships good for World Economy?
I’m no economist by any means, but question one of My Experiences on The Mississippi River years ago.
I had the privilege of piloting The Largest Vessel to visit The Mississippi North of New Orleans Louisiana USA.
The M/T Brooklyn, 230,000 dwt. 365 meters (1200 ft)
She was to be loaded with grain and scraped afterwards.
She took up two births at local grain elevator 60 Miles upstream from N.O. and stayed alongside for about 30 days.
After about two weeks One of Our Pilots turned her around and put her Starboard Side To Dock.
About two weeks later another pilot and I sailed her for sea!
In one month, pilots, Tugs, Linemen, had three assignments.
The elevators turn ships around in 30 hours or so.
This could have replaced 15 Panamax Type Vessels 72,000 ton.
Brooklyn Crew May have been 25 or 30 members?
15 Ships 15 to 20 crew members? 225 people?
That means Doctors, Taxis, Food Suppliers, Fuel, Local Business, repairs, Best Buy and the list goes on!!!
Also the Mishaps are Catastrophic to Shippers, Charters, trucks, trains, barges on and on!
This is just A Ole Mighty Mississippi River Pilot’s Experience.
I welcome Criticism!!!
Capt. Chris 37

Article Houston Pilots Practice Part Art, Part Science in Guiding Ships to Port

published on 11 November 2020

Maritime pilots trace the roots of their profession back to the ancient Greeks and Romans when incoming ship captains employed experienced local fisherman to guide their merchant vessels safely into port. It’s a legacy of skill, strength, and sharp wits, and our Houston Pilots (“Pilots”) have been meeting vessels at Galveston’s bar to carry on these proud traditions for just shy of 100 years.

Article A global overview of navigation incidents

published on 10 September 2021

In a navigation incident, the first line of inquiry would normally cover the bridge watchkeepers. While the human element plays a significant role in these incidents, it is perhaps worth asking, what if some geographic areas are more prone to navigation incidents than others?
