This Symposium provided a forum for discussion between the Coast Guard, pilots, and shipping interests of their differences of opinion on Piloting Practices, Coast Guard Pilot Regulation, and Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Control. The primary issues on piloting were federal and state licensing standards, pilot training, use of simulators in training, pilot autonomy. The VTS discussion focused on criteria for establishing VTS systems, waterway surveillance, communications problems, and industry advisory committees. On both topics, the qualifications and training of the involved Coast Guard personnel were discussed extensively.
