We are busily prepping the boat for a Panama Canal transit later this afternoon. I don't know how exciting it will be to watch (or even if we will be visible depending on the boat configuration in the locks), but we transit about 4pm Eastern Standard Time (incidentally that is also Panama time which is often synonymous with Island Time). As I told my mother, "don't rearrange your day to watch, but if you are online and interested maybe you can keep your browser open to the page". Panama Canal WebCam
We will be transiting the Gatun Locks today and after a night in the lake, we will transit the other two locks tomorrow early afternoon. Vessel information for Pelagic This link should show our instantaneous position via our AIS (Automatic Identification System). We have two line handlers on board that we met from other boats, a traveler from Russia and one from Hungary. The canal requires 4 line handlers not including the Captain. We will also have a pilot on board, so it will be busy aboard Pelagic. We hope to have an enjoyable, uneventful crossing. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
