Line handlers Offered for Panama Canal

HI, We are a Dutch couple (also speaking English and German) and we are looking for a volunteer job as line handlers through the Panama canal. We are in Panama now and be availible for the next two weeks. We are responsible, hardworking couple and do have sailing experience. Please send us a e-mail and find out if we match.
Regards. Mies

Re: Line handlers offered for Panama canal

I suggest you post a note in the notice board at Shelter Bay Marina. That is where I would expect to find most boats that need line handlers. Have fun!

Thanks for the advice. We didn't mention that we are in Panama city, do you or anybody else know a simular place over there?

With Regards,

Mies

Then the closest end of the canal is the Pacific end. Boats looking for a linehandler in the Pacific end will be boats going eastbound, of which there are fewer than going the other way. If that is what you want, in addition to the Balboa Yacht Club suggestion made above I would suggest you hang around the dinghy dock at La Playita.

Coming through on a Lagoon 440 Colon - Panama in about 10 days' time. PM me here. I'll be off-line from Cancun to Shelter Bay but we could sort things out when I get there. Tony

Thanks for your reply.

We would love to come along with you as we are still looking for a ride!
However, since we initially didn't receive any replies to all our efforts (we tried postering, hanging out at the marina, leaving messages on VHF, etc), we enrolled into a two week Spanish class. We will be done with these classes friday the 8th and will be available from then onwards.


We sent you a PM with more details and options, please check your inbox

Thank you,
Mies
