pilot boat / river pilot


Explanation:
In questo caso credo sia proprio il guidanave nei porti, anche al femminile 'pilotina'. Potrebbe anche esserci, però, una differenza di significato tra il maschile e il femminile.

una sorta di *l'aiutante di navigazione*, come anche suggerito dallo IATE

svelato l'arcano del termine 'pilotino' è il pilota (del porto) della 'pilotina'

"Nella loro “Torre”, situata in posizione strategica, controllano e gestiscono entrate ed uscite; quando è il momento, escono armati di radioline e guanti e, sulle moderne **pilotine (piccole ma potenti imbarcazioni a motore)** guidate dai fidati **“pilotini”**, vengono accompagnati fin sotto alla nave. L’accostamento, quando il mare è calmo, fila liscio come l’olio. "
