Layer: Pilot Boarding Areas (ID: 7)

Name: Pilot Boarding Areas

Display Field: name

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Pilot boarding areas are general locations at sea, depicted on NOAA navigational charts where pilots familiar with local waters board incoming vessels to navigate their passage to a destination port. Pilotage is compulsory for foreign vessels and U.S. vessels under register in foreign trade with specific draft characteristics. Individual ports may have additional pilotage regulations. See 46 CFR 15.812 for additional detail. Pilots can rendezvous with ships anywhere within a Pilot Boarding Area. The data are derived from the NOAA navigational charts or from descriptive information found in the United States Coastal Pilot. This dataset is one of two related feature classes which should be used in tandem. The sister dataset, of point geometry indicate more precise locations, where pilots rendezvous with ships, and is titled Pilot Boarding Stations. This dataset does not contain information regarding the hazards and considerations necessary to approach each port.
