Mobile Bar Pilots | Mobile, AL


published on 15 April 2022 102 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "Rhen Bartlett". Originally published on 2017-01-04.
The first permanent Mobile Bar Pilot was appointed by the King of France in the year 1711. Pilots have navigated ships over the Mobile (sand) Bar ever since. Shortly after Mobile was occupied by American troops during the War of 1812, the first American pilots were licensed. These men lived at a community located on Navy Cove known as Pilot Town . At first, the pilots worked independent of each other. They maintained a lookout; scanning the horizon for ships. When a sail was spotted, the pilots would race each other to the ship.
