Vessel Courage-Departing 11/19/07

Who else got on Courage? Was supposed to leave yesterday, but still sitting at the port.

Also, according the W&W website my car is going to Charleston, SC instead of NY. Does that make any sense to ship my car there when it would be quicker and probably cheaper to ship it from NY?

Can't complain too much, I'm finally on a boat.

I was wrong. I guess it did leave the port already and less than 100 miles from the Antwerp port.

Still don't know why it's final destination is SC. Isn't that where you go for the Performance Driving school?

Doh... I take that back. I just tracked with my VIN on 2wglobal.com and I'm on the Courage! Born on 11/13, at port 11/15 and apparently left on the Courage 11/19. That's weird, mine says Charleston, SC too.

Weird... not to ask a stupid question but you're using the "auto cargo" link to try and track it right?

Looks like every one of the 1033 cars on the Courage is going to Charleston. If you track your car it shows the Bill of Lading number. Take that number and do a "Track by Bill of Lading." You can see every single VIN loaded on the ship and the destination port for the VIN.

Hi all,

I took this screencap at 1630 CET. The big red ship is the Courage per Vessel Tracker. It's got our babies on board!

I find it hard you didn't get on. We all got to port around the same time. I remember we were all hoping we could get on Otello last week. Maybe the system is just taking awhile.

Actually, it must be one huge ship, because mine says it's due for New York, along with 930 other cars. Wow!

So the bill of lading must only show you cars that are going to your port. At least 2000 cars on that thing... dang!
