From the ships I've seen so far (I've followed the Jupiter Diamond and the Ryujin) I'm guessing that the Hojin will wait outside the canal for the rest of today, and get it's turn to enter sometime tomorrow. Once it enters the canal, if all moves smoothly, it should take about 12 hours to reach the Pacific side.

THANKS JMeezee! My stomach is churning waiting for her to arrive. It's nice to see that she's waiting to go through the locks. Keep the pictures coming please!

Yeah, That's what my wife is calling this for me too. Everyday she asks..."Have you checked into your support group yet?" or "Get off that f!@# computer. You and your Hojin groupies need to be tasered."

Once the ship clears the canal, it's going to take 9-10 days to reach the California coast...THEN it's got to go through the VPC, get trucked to your dealer, and get final prep at the dealer. All-in-all, I'd say 6/17 to be the most realistic estimate.

In my case, the Ryujin cleared the canal on 5/20, hit port on 5/30, and I'm taking delivery (in San Diego) on 6/6. That's how I came up with the estimates in your guys' cases. Who's got the Fast Forward button???

You're killing me JMeezee, you're killing me. I'm gonna go throw up now.

Please help us though by updating the AIS pics when you can. It does help ease the pain. Thanks man.

6/10 was the date we were estimating that it will reach port. I don't think that's too optimistic. I don't think anyone here is actually planning on picking up their cars from the dealer before the 15th.

I'm expecting the end of the month myself, but my car has a nice little truck ride up to Seattle after she gets off the boat.

My bad then - I originally thought there was the notion that you'd get your cars by the 10th. Guess it's time for me to jump ship off this thread!

From my internet research it looks like a 50-51 mile trip through the canal in an estimated 8 hours... We'll see!!
