The renewed call for regulations came after a vessel carrying rock salt almost collided with a pier last week near the Everett LNG terminal. Tugboats regularly assist in the docking of vessels in the Harbor, including LNG vessels at the Everett facility. Local Boston TV station CBS4boston.com also reported on the incident, quoting Barrios: “What we have in Massachusetts are no standards, no experience standards, no background checks on who it is that are our docking pilots.”
