Likelihood of a hawse-piper as a River pilot?

I know the Federal Pilot you speak of. We had shared many “Hoagies” (He called them"Po Boys) on our transit up and down the river. A most excellent pilot and not family related, I still have a letter from him with a few bills stapled together from a bet he lost on the Saints. They do hire non-family, unlike the other groups in that area. Not sure of rules now since I am retired, but no two relatives can work at the same time.
