Description: Pilot embarkation and disembarkation normally takes place when the vessel is underway or alongside a berth, but it may also take place when the vessel is at anchor. Possible transfer methods include by pilot boat, helicopter or directly from the shore. Transfer may be facilitated by the vessel's accommodation ladder or vehicle ramp, or possibly by crane basket. However, the usual method is by traditional wooden pilot ladder, and this arrangement is the focus of this publication.
The aim of this publication is to remind all ship operators and seafarers of the vital importance of adhering to the rules and established procedures when preparing for embarkation and disembarkation of pilots.
