Is the Canal getting ready for Zac?
« on: May 14, 2009, 10:39:32 AM »
Looks like the canal is getting ready for Zac's transit. They know a lot of people around the world will be watching the web cams. I think the Miraflores Locks and Gatun Locks web cam are a lot clearer, and today they have been moving the Miraflores cam around, and even doing some close ups.. They painted the walls and floor of the Visitor Center, and even painted where the birds set, was red, now brown. I sure hope he doesn't have to wait to long to transit. Sometimes it is a three week wait, and lets hope it is during the day. C.C.13

Well Zac made it. He sailed into Colon, Panama early this morning. He is at the Shelter Bay Marina. Pictures on his web site of him coming in. I can't post them, because of copyright Law.  C.C.13       http://zacsunderland.com

http://zacsunderland.com    Zac's site has time and other information on it, check it out and keep checking for up date's. I have gotten this from the canal. (He’s scheduled to enter Gatun Locks at 2031 hrs local time.  I believe he will stay overnite in Gatun Lake and continue his transit tomorrow, not sure though) If I get up dates I will post. If this is right it will be dark at the Gatun Locks. Good thing they are going to anchor in the Lake for the night and transit in the morning. C.C.13

I was just told that it is still around 9:00p.m. Panama time. But with about 4 ???? at the end. Want to have fun, read Zac's Blog. I have a feeling that so many people are going to be on the cams tonight and tomorrow that the site will crash and nobody will see Zac at all. Lets hope that doesn't happen. C.C.13

I just got this.(The webcams are partially pointed at the locations indicated.  The estimated time for his transit thru Miraflores Locks is 12pm (noon).  Other webcams will moved as he comes into the areas, operations allowing.) I didn't get a good picture last night. This is the best I could find. Look for the catamaran. C.C.13

P.S. just got this in time to add to post.( Change in times

Pedro Miguel locks at 11am,

Miraflores at 11:59am)

Thank you so much!  I'll take pix if they have a homecoming for him (which I'm sure they will).
