THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the first ship to cross the Panama Canal?

The Panama Canal was completed in August of 1914, cutting a 51 mile path through the Panama landscape from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

The canal reduced the journey from Eastern North America to the west by some 8,000 miles.

On August 13 1914 the SS Cristibal became the first ship to cross the Panama Canal but due to WWI the official opening of the canal did not occur until August 15 1914 and the SS Ancon has the honor of showing up in the records as the first ship to cross the Panama Canal.
