They panned back so we can see a full view of her. I think it helps to email them. They are great to help!

You can see the train engines pulling her through. There are also PanCanal pilots onboard taking her through. They boarded her this morning and take her through the whole 50 miles of canal.

I don't know who EUKOR is. Maybe the ship's builder. She's owned by NYK, I think.

Yeah I'm not sure why it has that on the side. I think it is WWL actually (which is weird, I thought it was NYK lines for the west coast ports).

Here is the best picture I could find of the ship:

No, I think Eukor just owns the ship and or manages it. The MFG of this ship is Built by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co.

You can go here to see how they load the cars, the deck, and engine room etc.. http://www.eukor.com/index.jsp

For those with AIS, you will be able to watch her leave the Pacific PanCanal Approach page over the next couple hours as she moves out of radar range. From there it will take about 6 days to reach the San Diego area and the San Diego AIS. That is when we will pick her up again. We might be able to see her on the Baja approach AIS, which is just before San Diego, but that radar was down all last weekend, so I don't know if it is reliable.

These black holes are hard to wait out. . . been there, done that!
