Boat: 48' steel cutter

San Diego - Panama - Florida / Oct-Nov 2006

In a few days I'm flying back to San Diego to get my 48 foot steel cutter ready for a delivery voyage back to our new base in NE Florida. Until then, I'm interested in hearing any news, tips, info or rumors on the Panama Canal transit situation. The latest I've read is off of Noonsite, and it's at least 6 months old. Has the Balboa Yacht Club gotten its mooring field squared away to handle transiting yachties? Any info is welcome on the news from Panama.

I am looking at making the same trip if all works out on a steel 51 foot ketch, around October 13 or so. I wanted to find another boat to sail with. This will be my first passage threw the Panama canal. Always safety in numbers. so if interested let me know.

Just curious why Oct?????

That is the height of hurricane season. Seems pretty risky to me.

BTW....sailing "with" another vessel seldom works out. I would recommend finding a net to check-in with.

No 2 vessels sail at the same speed. Even staying within VHF range can be difficult. Even if you did, you would be constantly looking over your shoulder.
