The only Pilot to get down without a Pilot Ladder, Pilot Boat, Lifejacket, Cigarettes or Whiskey!:

That was Peixe. Quite the character. Had him as a pilot many times in Aracaju, Brazil back in the '70s.

He has his own Wiki page: José Martins Ribeiro Nunes - Wikipedia

And an article in der Spiegel (in German): Brasilianischer Lotse: Fisch muss schwimmen - DER SPIEGEL

In the video he says he has not showered in fresh water in over 50 years and also does not drink water. Swims 4-5 hours to reach shore. What a legend!

It says video no longer available for me.

This should be available for users without Facebook. Same video.
