Photo of the Week
October 2, 2016
If you haven't been to Panama since
the new locks opened, you have never seen this anything like this in the
Panama Canal. CZ Images contributor Bill Fall is in Panama and
took this photo from his hotel room in Amador this morning. Here
is the MSC Katrina a new or neo Panamax ship entering the Panama Canal
for transit. What a massive ship of 1154.86 ft. in length and
157.48 ft. in width. The original lock chambers are 1050 x 33.31
ft. which this ship surely could not fit in. The new lock chambers
are 1400 x 180 ft., which this ship will fit comfortably in .
Wow...has time passed into the new age of big ships in the Panama Canal.
Below is a photo capture I
got on the Internet showing a rear view of the MSC Katrina and wanted to
post it to give you an idea how big this ship is at another angle.
As always...thank you Bill
for sending in another great photo.
