Congrats on your purchase. As others have suggested, your expected delivery date may be a tad 'ambitious'.
Mine was ordered 14 Jan and is currently sitting on the wharf at Curtis Bay, Baltimore awaiting shipment. As are the vehicles ordered by Webby1970 and Rocksfly. (que the Ottis Redding song)
"Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Curtis Bay
Cuz I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way......"
Clearly too much time on my hands now.
My prediction for Webby1970, Rocksfly and myself:
The car carrier Talisman is due in Baltimore on the 22 April, leaving on the 24th heading for Australia via for Savana, Manzanillo and Auckland. Due Brisbane on the 22nd May then on to Port Kembla on the 24th.
That will make it just short of 5 months from ordered to delivered for me.
So long story short Tahlee, don't be too disappointed if the dealer doesn't deliver....
