What's The Best Way To Do This? - I know there are people who post cards and fliers on the bulletin board at the end of the pier of the Balboa Yacht Club, but that only works if you're physically there to check. I would imagine one could call to ask at all of the different marinas on both sides to see if someone needs a line handler. As far as know there isn't any one source website or point of information where these kinds of things are discussed. There are several sailing related Yahoo! email groups that might help as well. And, one could post on a general interest group such as Americans in Panama and ask the 5,300+ members there - someone might know something. However I suspect the answer will revolve around the specific dates when you're going to be here in Feb 2012, and if there's a yacht going through on one of the days that you are both here and available to do it. If anyone has anything to add, please do so in the comments. Thanks.
