Recently, I had a chat with an old Trinity House,South Channel In pilot who stirred my memory. When I was first Licensed in 1967, Dungeness In, I was told by a pre-war II pilot that we had it easy these days, doing out qualifying trips, as it was not long before then that Pilots still had to have sailing time in their Discharge Books. There was a Brigantine,I believe, that took men hoping to become pilots as crew,on the cheap of course. Was that vessel called the Water Witch. Does anybody have any knowledge of this?
