Well actually tomorrow March 14th but we wanted you to open the post. We are scheduled to begin the transit tomorrow beginning at 3:45 p.m. We will enter the Gatun locks around 5:00 p.m then will anchor in Gatun Lake overnight. On Wednesday we will begin again, entering the Pedro Miguel Locks first and then the Miraflores Locks.
There are live web cams on the official website www.pancanal.com – the multimedia tab. There is one webcam at the Gatun Locks for tomorrow and then there is another one at the Miraflores Locks where we should be around 2:00 p.m on Wednesday. We will try to send posts from the canal.
Here we are with our “official” hand lines and fenders. The lines are each 150 feet long and there will be four of us tending them throughout the transit with Randy at the helm. Crew introduction video to follow on youtube.
