    I've heard from the Captain of the SteelRat that Fritz runs a good ship. Also heard the Melody is another good boat as well. I like the big Rat myself and spent lots of quality time on the sea over the last few months.

    Holy moly! And it seemed like such a good option!

    I wonder how many bikes were lost at sea.

    The Colombian government apparently has plans to start a regular vehicular ferry to and from Panama, but being South America this could be years away.

    The Stahlratte is still the best value option for getting a bike across the Gap imho.

    Latest bit I heard was that Fritz is back with a newer ship and is still making the trips, no word if he is still hauling motos or not.
