Pilot Boarding

Pilot Boarding

Pilot Boat and Boarding


The pilot(s) is transported via fast transport (pilot) vessels.  The vessel will be identifiable by standard day and night signals specifying a pilot boat.  The fast transport (pilot) vessel will vary in size based on sea conditions. For pilot boarding, we request the pilot ladder is rigged 1-2 meters (3-6 feet) above the water on the lee side at a slow speed (6-8 knots).

The pilot boat will monitor VHF-FM channels 13 and 16.  The working channels are 68 or 72.
