The work of handling cargo vessels on the Columbia requires the services of the professionals on the tug-and-barges, truck drivers, railroad employees, grain silo workers, warehousemen and longshoremen. All those efforts mean nothing if the vessels cannot make it out of port to our trading partners around the world. That is where the Columbia River Pilots and the river pilot launch crews of Foss Maritime come in. This is their book and it illustrates the job they do as they move vessels between Astoria and the inland ports. It is about the service they provide and the incredible professionalism they demonstrate.
