i believe it is currently $600- with a $800- bond. you will need to rent 4 very long lines and big fenders in addition to having at least 4 line handlers and a tip for the captain that the canal puts on your boat.

Reyes...check out www.kvh.com for satellite internet service. Check out www.noonsite.com for latest Panama fees and some good articles on preparation and procedures and contacts. Also...best month to cross for Europe is May. That's when the Return ARC leaves the islands for Bermuda to Europe.

Guillermo...forget about it!

I doubt that you'll find a company that is willing to charter you a boat for a voyage of that scope.

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.
