Question: Do some merchant ship captains have a bit of disdain for pilots? Considering pilots a bit superfluous and maybe union featherbedders? Not like waiting for the pilot to finally arrive? I sensed that attitude among some naval officers.On the old days, when the pilot boarded, the following legend was written in the Movement Book "Helm and engines to master's orders and Pilot's advice"
Things have changed a bit since then.
