Transit scheduled for Monday (Feb. 25)

John talked with Enrique yesterday evening and learned that our canal transit is scheduled for Monday. It’s kind of a relief to have a few extra days here because we have quite a bit of running around to do before we go. We need food for our crew and fuel for our engines. It would also be nice to get a local SIMM card for the cell phone.

By the way, the admeasurer got 46 feet as our total length with anchors hanging off the front and the windvane steering on the back. That’s the same as Swantown Marina measured, and it’s below the 50-foot price break on the transit, so we’re fine with it. We’re just glad we don’t always have to pay for those extra five feet beyond our documented length.
