Through Pedro Miguel and Mira Flores

03/24/2012, Pedro Miguel Lock

We had to wait for the other two boat two hours before entering Pedro Miguel Locks at about 11:30 PM. On Mira Flores Lake just before Mira Flores Lake -- while still rafted -- our fan belt disintegrated. We fixed it in record time.

We were at La Playita anchorage about 3:00 AM

03/23/2012, Colon to Panama City, Panama

On March 23 we transited the Panama Canal in Catharpin blue -- after doing it four other times on other boats (two this year, two last year).

We had four additional crew from Shelter Bay MArina.

It wa a non-stop transit with arrival in the middle of the night at La Playita in Panama City. The trip is only about 50 miles.

Rafting Up with two other boats

03/23/2012, Gatun Lock Forebay

We left the Flats near 3:30 in the afternoon. We proceeded to the forebay of Gatun Locks and rafted up with two other boats - Tropic Bird and a boat with german family. Neither of the other two boats had been at Shelter Bay with us. It was nice of the wind to die down a little so it was a little easier than the time we had when we went the week before.

We entered the first lock at about 5:00 PM and were out of all three about 6:00. It was nice to see some of Gatun Lake in the daylight.
