Default Hokule'a west bound in the Panama canal

Polynesian Voyaging Society's double-hulled voyaging canoe Hokule'a west
bound in the upper chamber of the Miraflores locks. January 11, 2017

Because Hokule'a has no engines, and because of the turbulence and currents
within the canal, the canoe was safely towed by a powerful work vessel
DWS Linda through the canal.

Hokule'a has now arrived at the Galapagos.

next leg of her journey takes the canoe to Rapa Nui, Isla de Pascua
then to Pitcairn Island,
then the Marquesas Islands before returning home to Hawaii

I wonder if the work boat was going thru the locks and just took them
along for free or if they had to pay for the tow. Back in 1955 or 56
my friend and I wanted to conoe down the Mississippi during the sommer
school break. We didn't think it out enough, but his parents would
not allow him to go. I wonder how many locks the Mississippi river had
between the start and New Orleans. Nope we couldn't 'google' back
than. Seems there are 29 on the upper river. Hal Thanks for the
pictures.
