Guy I used to know was the son of a Norfolk harbor pilot

Captains don't navigate their ships through Norfolk. Designated harbor pilots are ferried out to take over the helm. Civilian access to the bridge of a carrier is big no no but the captain extended the invitation to my friend when he found out he worked for a US senator
