I dropped off my Z4 35i in Nice on Sept. 2 and was supposed to be on Independence II which departed Bremerhaven today but now I see that's been changed to Manon. Kind of weird to see a last-minute switcheroo but Manon is slated to arrive in Brunswick a day earlier than the other ship so I can live with it (even if it did take 19 days to get on a ship).

My M3 vert is also on the Manon tomorrow after dropping it off on Sept 1 in Amsterdam. Thought that was kind of slow.

I'm on the Manon!!! Whoot whoot! That was faster than expected!!

ED: Sept 6th
ED drop off (Munich): Sept 14th
BOOKED: Sept 19th
RECEIVED AT TERMINAL: Sept 20th
Vessel name: MANON
Voyage#: CA138-MAN
ETA: Oct 5th (Port of Discharge: NEW YORK, NY)

Looks like my 335d will be in NY/NJ on 10/5. Hopefully, I get it (in Boston) before 10/30. There were no accidents, scraped bumpers or curbed rims to delay the process. Can't wait!!

=================

For anyone who wants to confirm if they are on the Manon:
1) http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/index.jsp
2) click track and trace at the bottom ("All Users")
3) entire your entire VIN# where in the Cargo ID box
4) Viola!!
(FYI - for those of us Mac users, Safari won't work; you'll need to use FireFox for your web browser).

My 1M is also on the Manon. I am doing PCD so it won't arrive Georgia until the 10th of October. Let's hope the storms don't delay anything.

FYI - more facts about the Manon listed here. We'll be holding an online quiz on Oct 5th to see who has memorized the most facts. Stay tuned.....

And I guess it's true what they say about the post ED drop-off: obsessing over the wait is uncontrollable beyond belief... That is all.

Speaking of Manon, she's anchored just off the coast of the Isle of Wight, awaiting her entry into the port of Southampton. After that, it's off to the US (via Halifax)!

It looks like her arrival into NY has been delayed by a day (now listed as 9/6). I guess I can wait 1 more day

I think you meant 10/6.

Yeah, I saw that, looks like it got hung up in Sweden. If I could fly to the UK, board the Manon, stick an oar out the side and row....I'd do it. Ha!

Go to marinetraffic.com and enter Manon as the vessel name. You can track it on a Google Map as if it were a plane.
