Vessels transiting Halifax Harbour Narrows must indicate air draft.
No change to the ETD may be made between the 5-hour notice and the 1-hour confirmation, unless the ETD is going to alter by more than 4 hours.
At the 1-hour confirmation, the departure/movage time may be altered twice, but the second altered time becomes the time at which the pilot will be ordered to service the vessel.
If the vessel has not departed/moved within ONE HOUR of the time for which the pilot is ordered, the pilot will report to the dispatch office. He may then leave the vessel or be assigned to another vessel. Another pilot will be dispatched to the vessel as soon as one becomes available.
