Re: Harbor pilots salary

Wow, second-hand info from the WSJ's Christopher Mims. Don't know if there would be fewer deaths if the pilots were shuttled on board by helicopter; going from a pilot boat to a huge freighter should not be so inherently dangerous.

The harbor pilot first approaches the massive skyscraper-sized cargo ship from a 55-foot long speedboat, according to Mims, who described how LA port harbor pilot Captain John Betz maneuvered the Netherlands, a Chinese-owned ship from Cosco Shipping Lines.
Sick of Cosco ships. Send 'em all back.
