Still sounds cheap, compared to the alternative.

Looking at the canal fees, I don't see how you get $1850 for a 41' boat. Its $550 now, and will presumably go up to $800 or so. There is an additional "buffer" fee. But that is supposed to be refunded if your transit goes as planned. Or am I missing something?
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
