Cruising Active Transport
We left San Francisco on September 7th 2008 and are off to see the world in our Tayana 37 Pilot House cutter.
Active Transport's Photos - Panama Canal Transit

Here is Equinox, a Island Packet Yacht belonging to Hank and Betsy Martin, that was to be our ride through the Panama canal. Notice all the fenders and old tires (wrapped in plastic garbage bags) that were set in place to protect the sides of the boat in the locks.  There are piles of tires in the marinas on both side of the canal.  I wonder if anyone has ever determined how many times a given tire transits the canal before its retired.   In the background is the bridge of the Americas that connects the panamerican highway across the cannal.
