We  entered the Gatun lock at 9 30 gmt and ascended 3 flights to reach the lake that is central Panama..No problems.Tied up to a catamaran of similar size who used his engines.Fed the boys .Up at 0630 to motor to Miraflores expect to arrive 1200gmt onward.
Had a little wobble as we entered the locks another lifetime ambition achieved.Pacific tomorrow.
Thankyou Gert and Rita for the send off.
