New Panama Canal pilots concerns about post panamax ships

New Panama Canal Pilots had previously complained of plans for two-way traffic of post-panamax ships of up to 49 metres beam in the Culebra Cut, the narrowest area of the canal. Londor Rankin, who became secretary general of the Panama Canal Pilots Association in January, says the union still has some concerns, particularly with regard to the prospect of the first LNG carriers to transit the canal.
