The locks associated with the canal system and dam are complete and are the largest in Europe, but there is evidently quite a bit of the project not complete yet as they await the World Court’s decision. It’s quite a major undertaking from an engineering and financial viewpoint whatever opinion one may hold of the project. The canal is like a gigantic aqueduct to hold the water of the Danube above and away from the land. The water is often 50 feet deep and about 300-400 yards wide. We were asked not to discuss the project within earshot of any crew-members since the matter is such a sore subject to all involved nationalities.
