Mrs. Oil...let me say that as a semi-pro ranter in this forum, that I am impressed with the passion you display towards this matter. You shine a bright light on a major issue in today's maritime industry which has escaped public scrutiny for too many years.
I could write an essay or two on what I think of most pilotage associations in the US but I can see that what I would write would have already been said here. I do wish to say though that I am in 100% agreement that the time has come for each and every pilots association in the US to become truly transparent and end the days to the secret society mindset which has created John Cota and many others like him.
All private pilotage associations with their inherent exclusive right to exist as competition free monopolies need to be terminated and their functions turned over to public entities as per the model of the Los Angeles Harbor Pilots.

take 2 tabs of sertraline, an antidepressant, sold as Zoloft
take only 1/2 tab of diphenoxylate and atropine, which treat gastrointestinal problems, sold under many names
take the whole bottle of prochlorperazine, which treat nausea, vomiting, schizophrenia and anxiety, sold as Compazine
