I just learned this today. I would have thought such an impressive engineering project would have received more publicity.

Yes, it will have a toll booth as well. Just toss the correct change in the little bucket and sail away.

Yes, people are now wider than the widest ships that can fit through the canal. Obesity, causing the re-engineering of the panama canal.

They are going to make the money back in 5 years based on what the cruise lines told them of the potential if it was to widen to accomedate the new floating city cruise ship.

Some of the cargo ships pay up to a $250K toll to go through the canal.

I recently saw a documentary on the construction of that thing. What an incredible undertaking that was, 100+ years ago.

I've taken the liberty of identifying nine new canals that could make shipping more efficient. With high unemployment rates, I see no reason why we shouldn't start on the new Rio Grande canal right now.

So as a followup, is this going to impact anyone's boat-buying decisions?

The problem is, the asian canal is likely to be too small for most western ships to fit through.

I woked on the canal project in 2008 and 2009. I am a mining consultant and helped design the mines to get the rock for the concrete needed for the project.

I worked on the canal in 2009 and 2010. I am a drug lord and I supplied the cocaine to keep the workers going night and day.
