Ships anchored at the Gatun Lake Yacht Club

Some of the anticruisers' anchorage mates at the Lake Gatun Yacht Club anchorage. An amazing and hugely money saving phenomena of parking an oceangoing vessel in fresh water is the ensuing death and falling off of all the seawater critters (barnacles, coral, sponges, scum, etc.) clinging to the hull. Ironically, the cost of transit can be offset by the advantages of an impromptu, underwater hull cleaning.
