My 335 is on there as well. Does look like it made a wrong turn, but now it's headed in the right direction.

Must've been trying to evade pirates!!!!

A little funny but certainly depressing. Look on the bright side - your car buying money gets to earn a little more interest at your bank!!

we might be ok! Ive noticed the ships draught has not changed at all. While others have. Plus another ship-- the hoegh africa.. Is doing the same thing-- running circles- this--- i hope -- tells me theres some kinda issue with the gps/ship tracking device... What are the chances of 2 ships doing circles in the same area?!..... Fingers crossed!

no info from Kline as far as latest update--they are still saying ETA is the same----but I do see a huge storm near the UK (hurricane force winds) thats causing travel problems... and the more I'm seeing this--and the more ships I'm seeing going in circles in the Channel (all vehicle carriers) I'm wondering if the ships are really all just waiting this storm out?....its been doing this since Saturday though--seems a bit long.

Looks like they got the rudder unstuck and it's heading this way. Wonder what the ETA into Brunswick is now?

so its confirmed! that *****ng storm over the UK did affect this!--and is now 5 days delayed into Brunswick--this will be in port on Sunday 11/10 instead of Weds. 11/6...Per BMW

so now on the 11th--the Independence II, the Don Juan, and this ship--will be at port, so that means VPC will be hell to go through



i hate the damn weather!

My 335 is also in the Bishu Hwy.
9/14/13 put ordered at dealer.
9/26/13 Dealer put in system.
10/17/13 vehicle finished production.
10/25/13 Bishu Hwy. left Brimmerhaven.
11/6/13 is the ETA at Baltimore.

My understanding is that Bishu Hwy is headed to the port in Baltimore. I see that some of you has posted arrival at Brunswick, Georgia.
I'm using the link below for vessel's info. Does anyone have differing info or a different website?
Where have you found a different ETA?

I also meant to ask. Does anyone know if the ship arrives either in Baltimore or Brunswick, what is the wait time at the 'Port' for accessories and transit to Houston, TX?

Ships frst US stop is Baltimore-- you being in Houston-- im pretty sure your port will be Brunswick (2nd stop). Eta to Baltimore was 11/3 and is now 11/6-7.-

Im in Ga-- and have had cars in the past make it through vpc and to my dealer within 2 days- my guess for you is about a week.

Also-- if it is Brunswick for you-- bc of the delay-- it is scheduled to get to the port at the same time as 2 other ships-- you can imagine the amount of cars beung processed at the VPC with that.


marinetraffic is good site to check on its status--however you likely wont get any more updates on this ship until next week sometime as it is currently out of range--which is what happens when its too far of the coast of Europe/U.S for any tracking to be available.

Kline website also will have an updated ETA as we get closer--but worry not my friend.. since my car is on here-- I am tracking this thing like a hawk---I'll update you all.

That puts it on Saturday. Don't think they process cars on the weekends at the VPC do they? I would think they would at least offload them from the boat though so it can move on.
