ACP Navigation Regulations, Article 64 and its Annex, state that vessels

Under current operating practices, vessels with a length of 700 feet
(213.36m) overall or more, and a beam 100 feet (30.48m) or more, not in
compliance with Panama Canal visibility requirements, are assigned an
additional assisting pilot for the transit.

Therefore, vessels with a length of 900 feet (274.32m) overall or more, and
vessels with a length of 700 feet (213.36m) overall or more, and a beam 100
feet (30.48m) or more not in compliance with Panama Canal visibility
requirements, must be equipped with pilot platforms and shelters.

Specific dimensions and characteristics of these shelters and platofrms can
be found in OP NOTICE TO SHIPPIN No.N-1-2014 (Revions 1) “Vessel
Requirements”, Section 3, “Requirement for Pilot Platforms and Shelters on
Certain Vessel”.
