FPB 64-6 Grey Wolf: They’re Getting Close…


Peter Watson and his intrepid crew aboard FPB 64-6 Grey Wolf are now just a few days’ from Panama. Keep up with their progress on Berthon’s web site. Of particular interest may be Peter’s comments after now having voyaged over 6,000 nm in the last two months.

    Team Dashew,

    I’ve been following the site; they seem in a hurry, this the first 64 through the Canal correct? Doesn’t this mean extra steps to get a transit time? You took Wind Horse thru a few years ago. What advise did you give Peter on Grey Wolfs transit? Just curious.

    Peter Watson decided he wants to see friends in the Med and the UK. The original plan had a bit more slack in it. But when he and the crew found out being at sea was mostly pleasant,they decided to press on. We’ve been through the Canal many times. As to advice, first use Tina McBride for paperwork. Next, do not spend time in Colon. Finally, if the trades are relaxed when they finish their transit keep going.
