A study on port piloting practice and pilotage areas in A Coruña, Cádiz, Bilbao and Toronto. The exploration of the pilot's activity and the harbour landscape lead to defining a series of recurring gestures and motifs, attempting to establish correspondences between them and certain elements of the cinematographic practice.
Some of these recurring motifs are taken up again Unabridged Maneuver such as the ladder hung over the cargo ships (for the pilot to get on board from the launch) and the climbing itself or the water depth measuring scale painted on the ship's hull.
