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?

funny--when i looked it up on the panama canal website, the price for under 50 ft --my boat--was 850, in print, PLUS handlers and advisor and lines and handlers et alii and et cetera.....where do folks get these lower rates??? isnt what is posted in panama canal site.
i figured i need 5000 for transit and foods
