Check that. It appears to be a pilot vessel for the cargo ship right near it.

Uh-oh... An unidentified ship trying to sneak into lower New York Harbor. Better call Homeland security.

Actually the coordinates of Swift Ace were updated 11 minutes ago and it does not seem to be very far behind that gray ship.

Too bad it's not July instead of January. Our boat would be in the water, and we could go give Swift Ace an escort into Jersey City.

Yeah, but would you have room for the rest of us?

The coast guard placard says our 20 foot boat can take eight passengers and still be within regulation

And now the real waiting game begins! At current speeds it should dock tonight, hopefully unload early tomorrow, and if we're lucky clear VPC/customs by Sat/Sun. I'm hoping it's at my dealer by Tues for Wedn/Thurs delivery.

My CA from Towne BMW told me five days would be the absolute max starting today. My f30 Sportline should have been off loaded by now (2pm) seeing the Swift Ace departs port of NYC at 3pm today. Customs/VPC next and after its completed there it will go onto a car carrier and makes the 4-5hr trip to the Buffalo area via the NYS Thruway. I will keep you posted.

No word here. I'm waiting to see when the Swift Ace leaves, since then at least we'll know it's finished unloading.

So he's promising Tuesday at the latest (or is he not counting Sunday)?

Thanks. I ordered the car on Nov. 2, 2012 and it has been 2 months and 1 day of waiting so I guess 3-4 more days will not kill me.

I know what you mean, but these last few days have made me feel pretty immature. Apparently, I have the patience of a 15 year old.

I was hoping to have mine this weekend. Not likely I'm afraid.
