Colon, Shelter Bay Marina
07 April 2012
Its only taken me a week to get these photos on the blog but we've made it to Panama. We decided to get an agent as they supply the lines and tyres for the transit and do all the legalities, paperwork etc. We have been measured and already have our date for the transit which is going to be on the 14th of April.
We are leaving the marina tomorrow to go up the Chagres River with our friends and then come back to the marina a few days before our transit to do some more provisioning which is daunting, I have already spent 700 dollars on food and still have a lot more things to buy ! Arrrhh .. James will be going through the canal with two other boats as they are going to come through with us as line handlers otherwise you have to pay 90 dollars per line handler. If you are interested in watching us go through there is a live web cam you can watch I will find out the details and post it as soon as I can !
