Captain Robert Flannery
Metro Pilots

Maritime is in my blood as I am a fifth generation Tugboat Captain. My grandfather owned a tugboat company in the early 1900s. My career started as a deckhand for Moran Towing and Transportation in September 1979. I was self-taught to sit for a license for Mate and then Master. I graduated from "Tugboat U" I am a "hawse piper." While serving as a captain my apprenticeship began. Following my apprenticeship, I became a member of Metro Pilots. The organization handles ships and barges for Moran Towing and Transportation.

Serving as President of Metro Pilots, I was involved with the dredging companies and the USCG with setting up half channel zones for the 50 Foot Project. I am currently serving on Harbor OPS Committee and Chair Deep Draft Working Committee. I am directly involved with the effort to bring the Mega Ships into the ports of NY and NJ. I recently took a trip to the West Coast to see how the ships handle. I also took part in Simulation at MITAGS. I am blessed to have the greatest job in the world and am looking forward to the forthcoming challenges the new Mega Ships will present to the ports of NY and NJ.
