You're welcome! It is fun to track.

Those photos of her in port are awesome. I was born and raised in SoCal and if I were still there, I would drive down and take photos of my car's ship in port, too. Those are really close up photos. The photos I've seen from other people who have driven to the port of Long Beach/LA are really far away. You can't get that close in those ports to take photos, so the photos of SD are awesome.

I also found out today that Porsches are unloaded in San Diego, besides Hondas, Volkswagons, etc.

The regular AIS web site is still down. Here's the latest off of that other AIS web site. She's still in SD.

I think she's on the move. I will keep an eye on her and post if she really is moving. Is she going to LA before PH?

The last I checked, the only way to get the port of LA vessel schedule was to pay for it. It use to cost $25 for their online database access for one week.

Hi there. I also have a car on the Aphrodite. Mine was a European Delivery that I dropped off two months ago in Paris. I've been tracking the ship on another board in addition to this one. SPN, we really appreciate your tracking photos!

I thought she was supposed to go from San Diego directly to Port Hueneme, but I could be wrong. Port Hueneme's schedule also got updated this week to reflect a 2/18 arrival vs. 2/17 when it wsa originally scheduled.

Last radar map of the night. I guess she's supposed to be heading to the port of LA, but in this radar shot, she's looking pretty confused.

She has stopped and is sitting at the dock. Mercedes' VPC is in Long Beach, so she's unloading MBs.

Bremerhaven is the port for BMW and Mercedes, so these ships typically stop in LA/Long Beach (they are joined together) and PH.

I saw a Wagoneer truck today on 101 North near gilroy at approximately 5:30pm. I'm assuming the cargo in their are bmw's from the Hudson in route to the bay area dealers.

It will only take about 1-2 hours for her to get to PH. I will keep an eye on her this morning.

Waiting for a car is an almost impossible lesson in patience, especially for those of us who are impatient. My car isn't shipping until mid April and I am already on the forums tracking (other people's) cars.

Congrats on making it through!

Nope, except to say it definately was a Wagoneer truck for cars - it was an enclosed trailer for cars. The sides were made out of some sort of canvas material which seems like it can be raised/lowered to expose the cargo. My best guess (and I could be wrong) is that truck was carrying cars from the Hudson Leader. Does MB and Porsche also use Wagoneer?
