Folks, keep in mind that ETA for Green Cove is dynamic & changes daily due to a number of factors

Good news. I don't see Green Cove on here anymore.

The above link states "Depart Last Lock" 3/28. Think this unfortunately confirms for us that the Green Cove is running late and arrivals at milestone ports are pushed back.

Which means it should be arrive in San Diego 4/3 possibly. My source hasn't been corrected if that is the case. Thanks for the update!

Anyone know what else is on that vessel according to the link you just posted?

Anyway, so where is this damn boat?!?!?

I live in Downtown San Diego, i'm going down the port nearby and getting a glimpse of the Green Cove. By now, the cars probably have been taken to the VPC right? at least the san diego dealership cars. Where is the VPC?

I did get to see the green cove and that thing was huge in person. (I will save you guys the trouble, "That's what she said!"). I wasn't sure if that was it since I was a bit far away and I didn't have access to get into the port, but 08AW3's pic above confirms that it was the Green Cove. There were plenty of people driving new hondas from the port into a lot. All I saw around the port were hondas, vw's, audi's, and mazda's...

I left the port around 645pm so it hadn't left until after then. Are you guys excited??? How are you guys preparing for the new baby? Some new shoes maybe...

I 'm wondering the same thing because I'm pretty sure my car was on that ship. I wonder how long it will take to get from the VPC(wherever that is) to the dealership. Guess we just gotta stand by. I'm tired of waiting...this sux

I thought this was an appropriate time to post a link for people who are curious of the process at the VDC. Interesting stats... 84 workers process 400 cars per day.. the lot holds 3000 cars with more waiting between the VDC and the 1.3 mile distance between the port and the vdc. Good news, priority one cars take 2 days... check it out...
