Well I guess the Canal is a 24/7/365 operation. The Admeasurer showed up on Easter at one in the afternoon.
We measured in at just under 50 feet, which gets you a $600 ish rate. Then the Admeasurer saw our USCG documentation that said 50. They can not record less than the documentation. This cost us another $250. :-( It is good to have a boat that measures 49' 11". The canal and some marinas put a serious tax on that last inch.
We received a little Panama Canal ID card that stays with the boat for the rest of its life making future transits easier.
