Re: C&D Canal

Use your radio 16/13. If you are passed throttle back to idle so the pass is completed quickly. I doubt you'll see a supertanker in the canal, but you certainly might in the bay or the Delaware. Barges are just as big a concern. The canal is pretty well controlled and any really big ships will make a securite call before entering.
