Not sure if this short video would be of interest to anyone on this forum but it captures a transit through the new locks of the Panama Canal.

They don't seem to have the same system as the older locks,no engines either side which was very good to watch . The new locks seem to have tugs instead does this make it quicker to transit the locks ?

I remember those engines Ron and the 2 guys in a rowing boat that they used to throw the lines from the ship to, I'm sure it must make it quicker but not quite the old school charm!
