How do maritime pilots work? In short term team!

In this video - recorded with zoom - you can watch an electronic chart display and compare it to the view out of the front windows. As well you can listen to some orders the pilot gives to the seaman at the helm (wheel) and to the officer at the engine telegraph. Some orders are by radio to the tugs.

In the end of the video the camera of the pilot is positioned in the portside bridge wing of the 247mx32m vessel while going alongside. A pilot or ship's master luckily is able to not only look out of the front window or in only one direction, but throu every window of the bridge. As well we are tracking a lot of digital and analog information from bridge equipment like radar, ECDIS, echosounders, AIS, radios. Communication e.g. with other traffic-ships, with tugs, linesmen and the bridgeteam is essential for a good pilotage.

This video seems to be slow and boring for non maritime people, but doing the job in a good way needs a lot of experience and knowledge. And it's the very the best job in the world when you believe you're not bad doing it and when you receive thanks and respect from captains or other members of the short term bridge, maritime and maneouvring team.

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 19 April 2020

Coronavirus may be hampering global trade but it hasn't broken the supply chain at the Port of Oakland. The latest evidence: the largest ship ever to call in Oakland arrives this week. The container vessel MSC Anna is scheduled to berth at the Port April 16.

The ship will tie up at Oakland International Container Terminal on the Oakland Estuary. The Port said that the 1,312-foot-long vessel is on special assignment from Geneva-based shipping line MSC. It’s collecting a backlog of empty containers in Southern California before arriving in Oakland. It’s scheduled to spend 24 hours here discharging import containers and loading exports.

Impatience is triggered when we have a set goal (for example berthing a vessel) but realise it's going to cost us more than we thought to reach it (the vessel is only making 6 knots against the tide and is taking much longer than predicted).
