This paper describes the complexity of the Baltic archipelago, and the navigational and operational processes involved in piloting these waters. This four year ethnographic study shows how piloting is learned, performed, and passed on to the next generation of pilots. The blend of new technology and old methods is discussed, the indivisibility of working and learning, and the individuality of the mental constructs of the mariners/pilots.
