Thanks to Jacqui Kenyon, Chevi King and Kate Delisky for joining Jeanine Drummond on this webinar to discuss their careers and pathways into marine pilotage. The audience was a great mix of experienced marine pilots and newer maritime industry participants, as well as school aged children, with people joining us from Australia and overseas. It was an opportunity to create greater awareness of the maritime industry, and the important role marine pilotage plays in protecting our port infrastructure, marine environment, as well as inspire another generation of Australian’s to consider how they too may want to be a marine pilot one day.

The differences in pilotage tasks across our Australian ports from Chevi’s experiences with transhipment operations, to Jacqui’s and Kate’s experiences with different ship types in their relevant ports was also an interesting point, and one in which we could have explored far more. There wasn’t a pilot in the room that wasn’t nodding their head in acknowledgement with the challenges these pilots described, nor the joy all pilots share in the satisfaction of completing each act of pilotage. Jacqui’s experiences with the different levels of engagement during pilotage highlighted the increased risk of single point of failure of marine pilots, and look to extend principles of BRM to include Port Resource Management such as VTS, Tugs, Wharf Officers, the people who know the pilot, the port and the procedures.

The discussion highlighted the professional standards, training and development that is required to achieve and maintain competency as a marine pilot, and the different pathways that these marine pilots have taken to achieve their respective roles. As marine pilots know, marine piloting is not for everyone, when you work 24/7 shift patterns, and often unpredictable work hours for many days, weeks at a time, and trying to sleep in advance of your shift with a dynamic schedule that is often changing, making it difficult to ensure you are always adequately rested for the responsibility of piloting ships in confined waters in good weather, and bad. It also highlighted the work life balance that is important for many mariners when they transition from seagoing roles, or other roles where they have had extended periods of time away from home working long hours.

The value of mentoring in not just a trainee marine pilot’s development, but throughout a marine pilots career is important to one’s personal development. Connecting two people in a mentoring partnership, is not a one way street, there should be value for both people to learn from each other.

Video Waterford Pilot boat, day of launch & ship boarding trials

published on 11 October 2021

Here's a cool little video of 'PORT LÁIRGE', the Port of Waterford’s new pilot boat we've just launched and it was wonderful to have built another pilot boat for Ireland. She's our 15m Interceptor 48 pilot and is the 48th pilot boat we’ve supplied to ports globally. Powered by a pair of Scania D13 500hp engines she has an operational speed of over 25kts and is capable of carrying of 5 pilots and 2 crew in fine comfort. I think she looks just fabulous in red and blue and look forward to...
