Oh, we're not going on Astarte though. We're going as crew for Jack on Anthem. He needs some line-handlers and we've wanted to do a canal passage. We decided we're here, there's a opportunity, and we shouldn't pass it up. So we've arranged with Panamarina to stay a few extra days and head back into Colon, meet Jack at Shelter Bay and go through the canal with him on Friday. We don't have an exact time, but there is a website you can go to: http://www.pancanal.com and watch boats pass through the canal (go to English/multimedia and hit either the Gatun or Miraflores locks to watch the boats go through. If possible, we'll send a note with a more accurate time if we have an internet connection.
Look for us. Michael will have his big straw hat on and Barbara will be wearing a red t-shirt. The boat has green canvas covers and is a Cabo Rico 38. So look for us!
We'll return to the boat probably on Sunday and then be ready to take off. We'll do our check-out on Thursday when we get to Colon before we head to Jack's boat. This will be a fun adventure and we're sincerely excited about this opportunity.
Thanks Jack for needing line-handlers.
