The hat here is not misplaced.  On the job here

a pilot guiding

Histria Coral through the Canal.    She’s less than half an hour ahead of Cap Palmerston

in the adjacent chamber.

Canal employees (v. vessel crew) can be identified here by their

blue uniforms.

Histria Coral is a six-year-old vessel, built in Romania.

Note the plants in the wheel house, sunshade over the bridge wings,

and color-coded manifold.

Ship’s officers?

Once this chamber empties, Histria Coral will be in Pacific waters.
