We left Shelter Bay march 5,after only 3 days of waiting time(Stanley was our
agent),anchored in the flats,and at 18.00,our pilot Moises came onboard.
Together with a danish boat(Dana Felicia),we tied up "center chamber "in the
Gatun Locks.With us onboard was also John from an Australian boat,helping us as
a linehandler.We climbed 3 locks in darkness and then entered the Gatun lake
for an overnight stay before proceeding next day.
