Dauntless' Panama Canal transit

This is a new thread for this weeks Panama Canal transit by Dauntless.

He started the transit Sunday .

They Did the first set of locks on his first day of transit - Sunday the 5th of March.

They will continue after a night on the hook & do the rest hopefully on the second day.

I will turn it over to Richard for him to add info as he goes, so stay tuned to get the complete low down.

Thanks.

Alfa Mike

Fascinating pictures and journey. Would love to rendezvous with you when you hit the SF Bay this summer. I'm sure other Bay Area TFers would like to do the same.

Best wishes

Richard

Bizarre incident at the start of our transit.
Swarmed by bees.
Weirdly, I just read about a boat that this happened to just last week.

It's pretty easy. The canal personal are very professional. As are the advisors and pilots.

One more milestone for Dauntless, congratulation Richard!
As for the bees, keep them aboard and you will get a good fresh honey every morning for your breakfast

Thanks so much for your very interesting blog. Good luck on your trek up the Central American coast. You may encounter more helicopters too.
