Now hear this. Now hear this.

The Undine is on the move again - Next stop Halifax!

Once it gets out into the North Atlantic it should turn on its tracking device so that it can be followed at http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/index.html#search .

I spoke to my CA and he had good news. He thinks that my car will be delivered BEFORE Christmas. Here's how he figured it:

Car arrives at Halifax Dec. 5

Add about 2 days to get on train - Dec. 7

4 to 5 days to Toronto by train - Dec. 11 or 12

2 days from Toronto to dealer - Dec. 13 or 14

1 day or so for PDI etc. - Dec. 14 or 15

He then added on a few days for screw ups/delays etc. to get to week of Mon. Dec. 18 - i.e. before Christmas. (By the way, I got the car from the BMW dealer in St. Catherines.)

It would be one hell of a present and I'd be able to drive it to friends and family for the festive celebrations. On top of that, I am taking the days off between Christmas and New Years and this will give some extra time to gently break her in.

I can't wait!

Thanks for posting the sailwx screen shot showing the position of the Undine. How do you do that? I tried to figure it out, but duhhh, I can't.

Anyways, it won't be long before you are tracking your own car making its way across the big pond.

Somebody may have an easier method than this:

- copy the image from your browser to the clipboard
- paste into a photo editing program (Paint, Paint Shop Pro, etc)
- save to a file
- attach the file to your post with the Manage Attachments button

Voila! In all honesty it didn't attach the first time but then I edited the post
and it magically appeared...?

(you'll have to figure this out cause this thread belongs to you guys with cars actually on the ship - I just wanted to get the ball rolling)

As for your delivery date - before Christmas sounds right. Earlier this month when I was hoping to catch your ship I figured Dec 20th, 21st or 22nd.

Fingers crossed

This makes me happy. I hate getting my hopes up, but yes... this makes me happy.

Hey, it works! Thanks, PiperD

It looks like these guys are looking for a little sun and maybe some Spanish chiquitas!

It looks like the sailors do need some relief and a happy ending.

Seriously, the Undine is now scheduled to arrive in Halifax on Dec 6, 1 day late. In looking at weather maps of the North Altantic, it looks like there is a nasty storm in the northeastern part of the ocean that the Undine is sailing south to avoid. I guess this has caused the delay. Anyways, here is the updated schedule from Wallenius Wilhelmsen:


Port Country Arrival Departure

BREMERHAVEN GERMANY 21/11/2006 23/11/2006
GOTHENBURG SWEDEN 24/11/2006 25/11/2006
ZEEBRUGGE BELGIUM 27/11/2006 27/11/2006
SOUTHAMPTON UNITED KINGDOM 28/11/2006 28/11/2006
HALIFAX, NS CANADA 06/12/2006 06/12/2006
NEW YORK, NY U.S.A. 08/12/2006 08/12/2006
BALTIMORE, MD U.S.A. 10/12/2006 11/12/2006
BRUNSWICK, GA U.S.A. 13/12/2006 13/12/2006


Well, this is one of the screw ups/delays that my CA built into the estimated time of delivery. Hope this is the end of the North Atlantic weather blues.

They're in the Azores right now, I bet they're gallivanting with whores again; that is the only explanation for the delay.

Looks like a short "stop" in the Azores and they have the afterburners on now!

For a minute there, I was getting worried - 33 miles in 6 hours - but the Mighty Undine has put it into hyperdrive once again. Only 2 more days to Canada!

Arrggggghhhhh! I should have kept my big mouth shut. The Undine is now delayed another day with the Willenius Wilhelmsen site showing docking and unloading occurring on Dec. 7 (a day that will live on in infamy). Sure hope that CN - oops, better zip up my gob. No more jinxing the system!

I wonder if there is something up at Halifax; right now the Undine shows docked in New Foundland; which is actually further than Halifax... weird.

Must have been just a GPS f***-up. No way a ship like that can travel over 500 miles in 6 hours and then end up some distance inshore on Nfld. Anyways, it seems to have been cleared up now with the latest update.

That was fast, it's not even there anymore.

Edit; now it's back, tricky Undine!
