Yes John

I do remember him and I had his daughter as second cook on one boat.
He retired quite a few years ago.
Latterly as lake boats we were not required to take pilots there.
Big savings for the company and when I asked what would be our compensation I was told "you could keep your job." Bad response as it upset all the masters and the weather delays alas increased amazingly!!!
We were paid additional for "Seaway"pilotage

good day
this is right no more pilot are used to berth ''lakers'' at pointe noire and even at sept iles , but from time to time we have to used the tugs only to berth at pointe noire due to weather condition
we have now only 3 pilots at sept iles serving pointe noire and la relance dock(new berth for the aluminium smelter) and aept iles (ioc)
