PILOT'S VIEW ABOUT THE LAY-OUT AND DIMENSIONS OF CHANNELS AND BASINS IN THE PORT

The planning for safety improvements at ports and harbors should take into account not only economic aspects, but also the attitude of mariners, as port users, toward whatever navigational risks might be involved. To learn more about what mariners considered to be desirable layouts and dimensions for port channels and basins, questionnaires were distributed to the 652 pilots in Japan who operate general cargo ships, containerships and pure car carriers. About 30% of those queried responded. This paper reports their subjective criteria for layout and dimensions and finds the pilots to have different criteria for different types of ships.
