1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: SS American Racer & American Reliance headed for Brownsville, Tx on: January 11, 2011, 05:56:23 pm
Normally the delay is one day, two max, and then they dock across from Balboa as the tow is inspected and the tug replenished. This is the first time I can ever recall it taking eight days after arrival for the tug and tow to circle around, clear, dock for one day, and then proceed to the locks. It would be interesting to hear exactly why it took so long?

ALEXANDRA is now pierside across from Balboa. This seems to be typical of a tug and tow so that either the tow can be inspected before transit and/or the crew/tug can be replenished. If I use previous tows as a comparison I would expect her to be here for about 2-3 days.

Today January 10, 2010 the Tug ALEXANDRA with the AMERICAN RELIANCE in tow is finally heading inbound to the Bridge of the Americas and should pass under approx 10:25am. She arrived at the Panama Canal Zone on the morning of January 3rd as has since been doing zig zags, circles, and giant loops awaiting her turn.

P.S. The tug Alexandra with the AMERICAN RELIANCE in tow is still doing loops and laps outside of the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal, FIVE days after arriving!!!

THANKS! I have been monitoring both ships positions all morning and see that THOMAS DANN with AMERICAN RACER in tow is now inbound towards the Bridge of the Americas. ALEXANDRA is still off doing circles.

As of right now (9:15am EST January 5, 2011) both the AMERICAN RACER *AND* the AMERICAN RELIANCE are now in a holding pattern off of the Panama Canal Zone (Pacific side) awaiting clearance for transit.

AMERICAN RELIANCE just reached the Panama Canal Zone this morning and currently in a 'holding pattern' until cleared to transit.
