Taipan moving through the Panama Canal

Watching our ship go though the canal in real time. Due in Port Hueneme on 7/15!
Oops... that's the Tiger. I misread the name on the ship. Taipan is still in Manzanillo.

Taipan at the Gatun Locks

I got a picture of it on its start through the canal. Not as good as yours but it is Taipan. Almost missed it

Sorry about the half picture. This one is a little better.

Thanks for the picture. I assume you had a car on it. It did unload at Port Huenme on the 15th. Any word on your car? My BMW tracking shows our car at "Finishing Touches."

Car delivered

Sorry I missed your response. After the Taipan dropped in Hueneme I contacted my CA and told him we would pick up on the 28th. Not sure when they got it in but we did get it today and drove it home. Great ride.

Ours is still not delivered. I think that is okay. The passenger side wheels got butchered on a curb on a narrow street in France. Looks like the delay means they are replacing the wheels. It's hard to wait though, we dropped it off in Paris on May 31st.
