I think it's a little bit of luck more than anything. My car has been done for awhile (too long) and its just sitting there waiting on a boat.

I was scouring this thread for a feel-good story and I have found it. I am hoping for the same kind of turn around for me.
Need to catch a ship by the 24th.

Waiting for a ship is the worst part because it seems rather unpredictable. It can take anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks. I got really lucky.

Mine finished production yesterday and is waiting to be released.
Can someone let me know A) where do I locate the shipping schedules for West Coast. I tried NYK website and it is dumb, or I am too stupid to use it...
Lastly, if it did complete yesterday, and since there is no way to tell when it will make it on a ship, using your best judgement what do you think will be the ship (if we go by the schedule posted above) that it might make it one. The 28th? Am I being optimistic?
I am way to excited to explain... Its almost here.
