(a) A person may not pilot a vessel subject to this chapter unless the person is licensed under this chapter and is a member of a pilot organization recognized by the board.

(b) A pilot may not be licensed in more than one pilotage region at one time unless the commissioner determines that an actual or imminent shortage of licensed pilots exists in a pilotage region. If the commissioner makes the determination described in this subsection, the board may, after consultation with the recognized pilot organizations and registered agents in the affected pilotage region, issue temporary licenses for the affected pilotage region to pilots who already hold a license for another pilotage region. The board shall ensure that sufficient pilots are available to provide pilotage services in the affected pilotage region to all vessels required to employ a pilot under this chapter. A temporary license issued under this subsection is valid for a period of not more than one year.

(c) A license issued under this chapter must identify the specific waterways and ports in each pilotage region in which a licensee is authorized by the board to pilot vessels. The board shall authorize a licensee to pilot vessels in a specific waterway or port in a pilotage region upon the licensee satisfying the training and other qualifying requirements required by the board to pilot vessels in that waterway or port.
