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?
You're missing something, line handlers, tires rental for bumpers, agent fees, adviser fees, etc... It adds up to about double the canal transit fee.
