I just found out today that my car is also on the Aquarius Leader! I was just in Panama, so I missed the boat by just a few weeks.

I hope it gets here early, although my dealer said that the cars were running 4-5 days behind

Cool. I think it'll be delayed. It's been anchored for a few days now. That was the ship's status as of 12-9-06.

This makes three. At least my baby has some company. Dealer told me just a minute ago that it is delayed until 12/30. Perfect! On vacation from the 26th to the 6th and come back in time for delivery.

That figures it's delayed. What a bummer. I wonder what the problem is?

So are we on schedule for the 30th still? What should we be looking at to get through the prep stage and on a truck to the dealer? I get home on the 6th and would love to pick up the car on the 7th. Possible?

My CA said 7-10 days to delivery after port arrival. I would think it would be quicker for you in LA since you don't have to wait for a truck ride to Seattle.

I'm a little confused. Jwarea's post on 12/18 had information that said it was still anchored, yet it also said it was cruising at a speed of 14.5 knots. Also, the latitude and longitude have changed since the first aislive.com report that was posted.

I'm not quite sure how to read that, but I'm hoping it means that the ship is underway.

I'm no sailor, so I could be totally off. Or perhaps I just want my car to get here 'on time!'
