Overview

Ships, Ports, and Pilots: A History of the Piloting Profession by Roger Clancy

References to pilots by the ancients in classical writing were commendatory and admiring, and pilots are mentioned several times in the Bible. It is very likely that professional pilots were guiding ships as early as 3000 years B.C.
Piloting is guiding seacraft in and out of seaports, avoiding the dangers of sandbars, ridges, underwater rocks, etc. This definitive history traces the important profession through the centuries, with special attention to maritime law.
