I remember going into exmouth wit the Sand Martin. The pilot (an elderly gent in 1962) did a stirling job. there was a strong currant on our port side. we had to enter at full speed and go full astern as soon as we were in (giving it all we had)
he performed a grand docking manouver in the process. certainly knew his tides and currants that man did. Sorry I cant remember the pilot cutter though. old grey cells are not what they were.
