Quays - Lake of Port Revel

All types of quay are in use at Port Revel: solid quaywalls, fully open wharves on piles and berths on a rubble slope.

Nearly 50 quays are scattered around the lake in various locations, some of which are subject to current.

At the NE end of the lake 23 m, 16 m and 14 m deep harbour basins are reproduced with quays.

A reproduction of the new Panama locks is also available.

The canal also includes a notch where a demonstration is often made to pilots as to the effect of a ship passing a moored ship.

In fact, captains and maritime pilots really need a training centre with extensive shallow waters, because that is where most of the ship manoeuvring is conducted.
