a Panama canal tug applies braking force to a decommissioned warship, Algonquin, entering the east lane of the Miraflores locks

A Panama Canal tugboat puts the brakes on the decommissioned warship, Algonquin, entering the east lane of the Miraflores locks. Most vessels navigate the Panama Canal under their own power (with intensely precise positioning assists from locomotives on the lock walls). In this case, the ship was a hulk, destined for scrap, without any power of its own. The tugboat pilots have a chance to show their stuff!
