  1. No matter the ladder, a rope should always be tied at the bottom step so the crew of the vessel heave up the ladder when the pilot boat approaches the vessel.

  2. Pls advise . Should the steps of a pilot ladder reach all the way up to the main deck? Even if you only need the first 9 mtrs or six mtrs in the case of combination ladders?
    Cannot seem to find a definitive ruling.
