I am considering taking my boat from Florida to the Sea of Cortez via the Panama Canal. I am looking for information, guide books, etc. which would be of help in preparing for the voyage. For example, I will have to make one fuel stop prior to landfall on the Yucatan. I am also interested in the process, costs, etc. of the passage through the canal. Can anyone recommend a source for such info?
This may help. Pretty detailed descriptio by Marie Dufour on how her and her husband prepared for transiting the canal in their powercat Domino. There is a second article (two articles forward) on how the transit through the canal in their own boat went. Plus, several artices on how they got to Panama.
This was all very recent ( they are still there ), so the info is current.
