Wesley Moore is a Sabine Pilot from USA and a long time user of Navicom gear. He makes some amazing videos of his pilotage. He captures the ship maneuvers with great expertise while providing an inset screen of the software used for pilotage along with interesting comments and perspectives. His Vimeo channel is full of amazing ship handling videos and we are keen to share this one with you. 

Here he maneuvres the LNG tanker Sevilla Knutsen and has some good things to say about PPUs. Towards the end of the video you can see for yourself the wind speeds increasing to 30 knots (gusts at 50 knots!) and fog thickness dropping visibility to less than 1/3rd of a mile. Which is when he comments with confidence to the captain, "This is why we PPU".
