A to P, being Atlantic to Pacific, beginning in Limón Bay–the Atlantic side of the isthmus:  it has a lot of ACP boats, and I’ll focus on those later, but for now, let’s sample the others I saw on the trip across the Bay to Cristobal.

This one on the hard in Shelter Bay . . . all I tell you about it is that it’s a Damen Stan Tug 1606 registered in Port Louis and likely operated by Jan de Nul Group, which has huge dredging interests in the Canal;  I’ll post photos of dredging soon.  Port Louis . . . would that be Grenada?

Choroy was built in Singapore in 1997.

The colors here in the port of Cristobal are perfect.

SST Portobello, built in Vietnam and the Netherlands and arrived here last year, bears the name of a Panamanian port recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

SST Yagui is a 2011 build, flagged Mexican, or was at one time.  The prefix SST could represent SaamSmit Towage.

Smit Aruba (2006) has been painted in Saam Smit colors.

I believe that says Choy Lee, which suggests the owners of this small tug want to be associated with builder of a class of  ACP tugs. 

Choy Lee‘s partner on the job is Thelma S.
