Bermuda Pilot

With G.P.S. navigation able to keep a ship within of few feet of it’s actual position it’s hard to justify the existence of “the Pilot”. He’s the man who knows the harbor like the back of his hand and “helps” the captain navigate his ship safely out of the harbor. Still, it’s a tradition, the port has to provide something for it’s user fees, and I love watching the Pilot getting off the ship when his job is done. The boats the pilots use are almost always high speed jobs that look and sound great. When the sea is high it’s worth watching.
