The libra leader is currently docked in Manzanillo, is there a way of seeing what time it's scheduled to go through the canal?
Usually a day in port at Manzanillo, then straight through the canal a few hours later. Have you got the Panama webcam address to watch it through? I got some great shots for the family album

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Hi all, here are some pics of my new Winter Chill GC.

Overall I'm very happy with the colour, seeing ours was the first one I'd seen 'in the metal' when we collected it Thursday night.

It does vary a bit depending on sunlight, angle etc, I think the pics show that. These were all taken in about a 5 minute period.

Went for a bit of a drive on Saturday in the Adelaide Hills, still loving it.

Cheers
Brenton

Your right Brett, thanks for the tip. I didn't know you could google the ship's name and get a location.
Its due to dock in Brisbane on the 28th May, my car is due on the 3rd March, it could be on it. Were do the cars for NSW get delivered?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Just confirmed, I pick up Thursday!!!!!!!! No sleeps until then!!! That makes it
12.5 weeks from order, two weeks to the day from unloading at Brisbane. Not too bad considering and the time has absloutely flown!! Just need to book better weather. So far it's forcasting showers and I don't want to get it wet, or dirty and nobody is allowed to eat in it, and no biting your nails in it, and make sure your shoes are clean before getting in and no sunscreen, and no touching the glass and............
