Transiting Canals

always sucks. I’ve been through Panama twice and it’s always a pain/stressful evolution.

Galrahn is aboard USS FREEDOM as she transits the locks through the Welland Canal System. Those canals are ridiculously small (80 ft. side to side) and the FREEDOM appears to have had a *wee* bit of difficulty getting through them, to the tune of some damage to the bridge wing.

However, Galrahn has posted an excellent eye-witness account of how the ship got damaged, but more importantly, how the ship quickly overcame, gleaned the lessons learned, and safely completed the evolution. A true testament to the proficiency of the crew and their exceptional leadership.
