When navigating in open waters, large vessels are autonomous.

However, when arriving or leaving a harbour, or during complex or sensitive maneuvres, they request a pilot, an experienced seaman with indepth knowledge of local waterways, to advise the captain.

pilotine is the french word for pilot boat, a fast boat used to carry the pilot onboard those large vessels.
