PALM BEACH HARBOR PILOTS

Pilotage is compulsory for foreign-flag vessels and U.S. vessels under register in the foreign trade if drawing seven feet or more of water. Pilotage is optional for U.S. coastwise vessels that have on board a pilot licensed by the Federal Government. Palm Beach Pilots board vessels from a 31' gray-hulled, white-housed Pilot boat with the word "PILOT" on the house, in the vicinity of sea buoy "LW". Vessels should maintain a speed of 3-4 knots, with a ladder rigged on the lee side, 1 meter from the water. Pilots monitor VHF channel 16 and use channel 14 as a working frequency.
