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!'
I'm not a sailor either. I was just copying and pasting information as I see them. I don't know how to interpret those information so I was basing it on the "status" line and members from another forum. It looks like the ship is on it's way and the coordinates maps to somewhere off the shore of the Panama Canal. I can't wait any longer, it's killing me!

Thanks Jawara -- keep up the updates to coordinates, they are much appreciated. With the coordinates, one can go to Google earth and use the cursor to "see" the ship's location. Very cool.

Looks like we moved up a day, now it's due in port the 29th instead of the 30th -- excellent! Jawara, how are the coordinates looking?

Thanks, Glad to join you. However, I didn't get the chance to track the ship as it sail along the Atlantic and Pacific.

That's okay... it was a bumpy ride the first leg of the journey as we tried to figure out how long it would be delayed. But Jwarea has been great about keeping us update on its journey, so we should see it soon!

Merry Belated Christmas everyone. Here's my christmas gift for you.



MMSI 354370000 IMO number 9158276 Detailed vessel information can be found at

Requires subscription from
http://www.ships-register.com/
Name AQUARIUS LEADER Latitude 29 4.89'
Callsign 3FHT8 Longitude -117 43.31'
Length 199 m Heading 340
Beam 32 m Speed 17.1 knots
Draught 9.1 m Destination LONG BEACH
Vessel Type Cargo ETA 12/27/2006 03:00:00 PM
Extra Info N/A Status Under way using engine

It was off the shore of Baja California when that it was last tracked. NOTICE: ETA of 12/27/2006 at Long Beach 3PM. Not sure how long it will stay there but Port Hueneme is not far up from it. Maybe we'll get lucky and arrive at Port Hueneme on the 28th. It's getting close, I can finally get my car back (FYI, I did Euro Delivery if I haven't mentioned that before).

I'm definitely impatient. Although you'll have your car well before I'll have mine since you live in SoCal. I have to wait for mine to get up to Seattle!

To bad I cant track the car's location once it hits land...

Sorry that you have to wait even longer, I'm glad that I live in LA. My dealer is in Calabasas which is even closer to Port Hueneme than I am, so hopefully they'll get the car sooner.

Hey Jwarea - do you know if the AQ has reached its final destination? I just want to time it right when I call the dealer and ask him not to drill holes in the front bumper, not to let anyone test drive it, and setup my delivery date!

My trial subscription to aislive expired, but it should be docked already. Port of Hueneme schedule shows that it's suppose to dock on the evening of the 29th.

Yes. Looks like everything is on schedule. I must be sick. Writing from the airport in Buenos Aires waiting for flight to Punta del Esta. Still thinking about this car.

My dealer called me today and told me that my car that was on the Aquarius Leader is now in the Oxnard processing facility, and that I should be able to take delivery (in Seattle) as early as Jan 5th, although it could be as late as Jan 10th!

If you guys dont want holes in your front bumper for the license plate, now's the time to let your dealer know!
