As we get our first look at OCISLY mounted on the back of MIGHTY SERVANT 1 I think we can see that the wing extensions have been completely removed. This explains what she was probably having done in the dockyard in Freeport.

Actually I believe the wings have not been removed. In that picture above we can see the platform extending past the side hull of the ship. In addition the full landing circle is visible and what I believe is the name of the ship on the platform edge nearest us.

As per this photo, it looks like the writing and portions of the landing circle extend on to the wings:

I can see what you mean, you're most probably correct.

It looks like Mighty Servant 1 has moved into the first of the Cocoli locks. It appears that the webcam is looking at the end of the first and the beginning of the second locks. So, MS1 is probably out of frame to the left.

As MIGHTY SERVANT 1 heads into the Eastern Pacific she will be watching the weather enroute carefully.
Her next leg is about 2912 NM and she is estimating to arrive in Long Beach on 6 July.
She will need to maintain around 12.5kts all the way to achieve this which I think may be a bit on the ambitious side judging by her performance on the first leg to Panama.
She has about 48 hrs of isolated thunderstorms with occasional heavy showers ahead of her before breaking out into another 48 hrs or so of fine weather before arriving into an area of concern weatherwise.
Tropical Storm Enrique has formed off the Mexican coast near Acapulco and will slowly head north strengthening as it does so. The current bet is the Enrique will develop into a Category 2 hurricane. The problem with this storm is that it is forecast to move slowly and the hope will be that it will drift out to sea rather than hug the coastline. At the moment I think it unlikely that MIGHTY SERVANT 1 will catch this storm up.
The problem is that it looks possible that another storm may form behind Enrique and this is what I shall be looking for over the coming days.

Since departing the Panama Canal MIGHTY SERVANT 1 has been making about 12 kts enroute to Long Beach.
Tropical Storm Enrique is now Hurricane Enrique, a category 1 hurricane that forecasters now estimate will not deepen further and will slowly head north before fizzling out as it reaches Baja California around Thursday.
The chances of a secondary storm forming have now receeded which is great news for MIGHTY SERVANT 1.
