    Re: World's PILOT BOATS

    Singapore Pilot boarding MODU "Hakuryu V" by Billy Pugh Basket.

    Pilot boat approaching:


    What, no Pilot Ladder???:

    But the Basket is on the way down.

    Standing by to receive the Basket:

    Then the normal show begins, the Pilot Boat chasing the Basket, while the Crane Operator chaise the boat.

    After a bit of a "Goose Chaise" the two got together:


    Pilot on board, hoist the H-flag:

    He was lifted all the way to the Helideck in comfort. Beats climbing 50 m. of stairs, the first 15 encrusted in barnacles:

        You have to love/laugh that the yellow safety strap on top of the basket attaches to the same ring as the four primary lifting cables.

          There is also a safety wire below the ring to the centre column. An improvement from the old Billy Pugh.

            It has been three weeks with nothing in this thread so I present "Smokey" our pilot boat in Yalta, Ukraine.

            Nope, nothing to see here.


            Time for the transfer. But why the name Smokey?


            Oh, there it is. Time for some injector work maybe?


            Nope, it's not just smoke when accelerating?


            Smoke all the way.

                    In these pictures you can see why it is called the Black Sea.

                              Oh look, yet another pilot boat from my summer cruise. This transfer was near the end of our trip through the Bosporous and not long before we stared docking maneuvers in Istanbul. I wonder if they were passing documentation for all the tourists about to be dumped ashore.

                                I think there is a bit of a man hug going on here.
