Re: Alternative to Panama Canal
Outbound, in terms of planning your journey it makes sense to think about what your plans are after you go through the Canal. Sit back with a beer and Cornell and you will see that the sequence of when you can go where.
Costs for doing Panama vary a lot depending on how much of the work you pay for (agent, hiring line handlers, lines, fenders, etc) and size. Price goes way up at 50' (I noticed you are close) and they measure. Our 45 footer measured at 48.5' because of Monitor. Davits could be a big issue.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
