The Longest Passage [5:51]
When a Maryland Bay pilot brings a big ship up the Chesapeake Bay to Baltimore, he (or she) is making the longest single-pilot passage in America. When Captain Randy Bourgeois boards his ship, he is 8 miles from shore, 150 miles from Baltimore.
His job: guide a deep draft ship through a long, shallow estuary. And do it without incident, accident or environmental catastrophe.
