Experienced Panama Canal Crew Available

We have biked all the way from Canada (and are now in Panama!). Our trip has included sailing as well - a great passage between La Paz and Mazatlan, and we would love to end the journey by helping someone get through the Panama Canal.
I crewed on a boat three years ago on its passage through the canal and am keen to do it again. We will be in Panama city in three or four days - if you are going through the canal in the next week and a half and need a couple of extra hands, let us know!
Meredith and Alex

You'd be better off asking at the yacht clubs at either end of the canal. Many yachts will need line handlers for the crossing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SVAuspicious will become famous soon enough
You might try walking the docks at Shelter Bay Marina. Even if you don't find a ride there you are likely to find someone who will announce your availability on the radio. According to Noonsite ( http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/Pa...rc=GeneralInfo ) there are cruiser's nets on VHF and SSB. I've found such nets (in other places) to be very useful for connecting people up.

Crap.. that's correct... however, there must be some local business that the cruisers awaiting passage frequent. You might have better luck asking on the SSCA website or on Cruisers Forums, as they're likely to have more people actually transiting the canal.

SVAuspicious's suggestion of talking to people at the docks is a good one too.
