Rough Seas?

Awaiting 330i aboard Tancred, forecasted date for NY arrival went from 2/23 to 2/25 to 2/27.....

Anyone know the tolerance on timing for arrival

Can't take the wait anymore ;>

we're on the same boat, no idea what's going on.

After the boat arrives NY, how long it might take to get to the dealer's(in NJ)? another couple of weeks?? that's gonna kill me ... :mad:

Weird ... the WW shipping site now shows the TANCRED as having arrived and left NY! (dated Feb 27??) and it seems to have missed Halifax (scheduled for Feb 25??) . What the heck?

Called my SA to find out from their internal tracking system what happened. Will let you know as soon as I find anything.

I see the same thing, very odd - maybe some "conditions" dictated moving to NY first?? If that is the case not sure why they would not have updated the port date....

Completely psyched if its finally here :rocks:

Post up if you find anymore detail please - my dealer did not know that you could even get this info? I sent him to this post

Hi all...

I'm aboard the Don Juan (EDIT: I'm not literally on the Don Juan, my car is ), but I thought I'd help out, and see what info I might find for you, but searching the internet and other resources like sailwx.info and aislive.com are leave me coming up completely empty with the name "Tancred" (except there seems to have been a U.S. WWII-era ship named the USS Tancred, and the Nosac Tancred which is an auto carrier, but was renamed the Nosac Sea in 1989). I also looked at W&W's site for information on this ship, and also came up blank. Does anybody know the EXACT name of the ship, and better yet...it's call sign? Would like to help if I can, but Tancred isn't getting me anywhere.

Looks like this morning "NY" is no longer in red and it's back on schedule to hit Halifax tomorrow. Maybe it was just a glitch in the tracking system and all is unchanged otherwise.
My dealer will be contacting me today with an update, so in case he has any differening information I will post it here.

Hi Folks...

Just thought I'd pass along some information for you. I was looking up some information for the Don Juan, which is due into Halifax sometime today, and I noticed the Tancred's information was posted also. Thought it might be of interest.

Fletch!

Thanks for the info!! Now we know it didn't sink ... Looks like there's nothing you can't find on this forum.

Btw, you guys on Don Juan are really lucky!

Thanks fletcher969! Great info!

So even though the WW site shows arrival at Halifax on the 25th, Port of Halifax (www.portofhalifax.ca) actually shows it as 8PM Eastern on the 24th ... I figure that the WW site's times and dates are actually based on the time in Sweden (where they are based out of I believe).

So chances are that the ship has been docked in Halifax for a couple of hours now - my E90 is home!!!! ... too bad it's going to take at least 3 weeks for it to crawl across the continent by train

One3...doesn't appear your ship has arrived just yet. The attached image doesn't show it (or the Don Juan which is following closely) near Port Halifax just yet. The attached map is updated hourly, so it's possible it's withing range...

Regardless, I'd say our ships are running behind somewhat...but they're getting close!

Fletch!

Wow Fletch!
Great sites you've found! Thanks!
I'm going to check the AIS site and watch for both our ships!

Great, another 800 miles to go, guess it'll arrive NY by Monday. Thanks for the update!

After knowing the VPC is not open over the weekend, I feel a little better about the delay(23->25->27). Hopefully I can pick her up next weekend!!

My car came in on the Elektra and docked NY on 1/29, but it travelled the same route as you guys are. The details on timing for me are in my original thread located here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11066

In that thread I also found webcams in Halifax where I saw my ship dock, and leave port heading for NY. The dock is in the far nothern tip of the inlet, or at the top left of the webcam.

Garage List
Most of the ships coming over the Atlantic deviate from their original schedule. I lost 4 days from the original arrival date (1/12 --> 1/16) when my car was coming over.

Good luck all!
