I really like how it is explained that it takes 30 minutes or more to get yachts rafted together. So is one to assume a tanker or commercial shipping vessel ties up in 2 minutes ?

There is also the piracy deal going on in the western side Panama - I wonder if that actually has anything to do with. However, when said and done - this is the issue that happens when a "third world" country, inherits the rights of passage as designed by a leading country. Carter never should of relinguished the control over so quickly (Carter or was it Reagan?).
