Huh, I really wonder how they determine the order for cars being put on the boat. My car got to port on the 14th yet still missed this boat. I'm pretty sure others have been waiting longer than I have and still missed the boat.

When did you order your car? Perhaps they base it off that? I also assume your car is being delivered to NYC while mine is going to Baltimore? Maybe that makes a difference too?

Congrats on making the boat though, I'm jealous.

I ordered my car first week of August!
I got the dealer to update an allocation that was going into production but I still waited to week 37 for it to start production. I wonder the same thing, who dictates which cars get on which boat?

Yes. However, the Carmen is actually reporting her position every 6 hours: http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shi...html?call=SMGW

He was just lucky that there were two boats leaving for east coast one day after the other. For the most part there is one boat per week going to the east coast and it appears that every month or so there is an extra boat. I got on the TOPEKA and the CARMEN loaded right behind it and left the next day.

Well, I have my finger's crossed. I saw my dealer's order inventory last week, and the longest one of their vehicles took from port to dealer was 3 days, and the fastest was 24 hours. Hoping for the same I should have it by saturday at the latest. Unless for some reason they hold back the 335's like i've heard in the past. Hope not!!!

The wait is killing me!!!! ahhhhhh
