Question: What is a "Panama" from the boat explosion scene?

Chosen answer: "Panama" is their nickname for the escape tactic employed which caused the boat to explode. As they said in the movie, it is so named because the first time they tried this stunt they thought they were in Panama.

Question: In the scene where the three main characters are in the Texas and are being bombarded , Dirk claims that the plates are 2 feet thick. They then discover the use of armor-piercing shells. Does he mean 2 inches? I believe the boat would sink if they were indeed 2 feet thick.

Chosen answer: While Dirk seems to be exaggerating slightly, there were certainly many classes of WWI and WWII battleships that had armor in excess of 18" thick in places. They floated just fine - in fact, they were notoriously difficult to sink.
