About 9 hours after entering the first Panama Canal lock and 47 km later, the MS Veendam finally reaches Gatun Lock which will lower the ship 85 feet (26 m) down to the Atlantic Ocean.  It will take another 2 hours to go through the 3 chambers of Gatun Locks.  This is a busy lock.
.
You can see here that 2 ships are ahead of the MS Veendam.  And suddenly this tugboat decides to jump the queue and sneak a position in front of us...I guess they can do that because it is a Canal tugboat! We will ride the waters together in the same chamber going down.
.
Did you know that military vessels of the Republic of Panama and the United States have priority over all other vessels going though the canal?

    Yup, I can see the military vessels being the equivalent of a police car turning its flashers on just to go a red light!
