We are in La Playita on theCanal side of the Amador causeway. It seems impossible to get into Flamico Marina -- the only real marina here. It is full with local pleasure fishing boats.

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.
