Marine Navigation Safety harbor pilot
Calling all applicants. The deadline is fast approaching for submitting application for two anticipated openings in Boston. It will be interesting to watch how this process unfolds. The pilot commissioners are a public body subject to Massachusetts open meeting rules Link here: OML Judge Robert Hallissey a former pilot commissioner in Boston established the pilot commissioners procedure to comply with OML. I am only aware of one pilot who has informed his intention of retiring. I can speak for myself and say I have no intension of retiring in the next ten years. I had one more question on age restrictions. There is no age restriction on the books. Past applicants age ranges are wide. I will not comment on the age of those selected but one can certainly request that public information from the commissioners themselves. The Pilot Commissioners are a public body in the eyes of Massachusetts law and one can request information that may be helpful such as number of ship movements, total receipts for pilotage, reports of pilot assignments, rotation and history. Happy to answer any question as the process continues.
