Transiting the Panama Canal

Here is a novel look at transiting the Panama Canal in a small boat. Small motor or sailing yachts normally raft up two or three abreast and proceed together from one lock to another. Once in the Gatun Lake, they break up and continue to the locks on the other end of the Canal independently, where they raft up again to negotiate the second set of locks before entering the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean Sea.

  1. The VIDEO is exciting. I watched it a few times. It’s fascinating to see how the boat moves. Your boat seems too small compared to the rest, but it seems to make it easier to transit.
