Call this a virtual gallivant . . . Mage Bailey, long-time reader and commenter here, traveled through the Panama Canal last month and sent these spectacular photos.
Let’s follow the nearer tug on MSC Kim‘s starboard stern quarter . . .
One year older but otherwise built in the same yard . . . it’s Belen.
Click here for a number of posts I did in Panama a few years ago. By the way, MSC Kim today is somewhere in the Pacific; she was last in the sixth boro in November 2013 . . . although as with most traffic in this harbor, I missed her.
Many many thanks to Mage Bailey for these photos. More soon.
