I just confirmed with my CA that my car which was/is on the Elektra is still on the Elektra and was not transferred to the Manon. He told me the arrival date in NJ is still the 11th as of right now.

I still have yet to confirm the switch with my CA, but WWL told me that Elektra is in dry dock and that the cargo was switched to Mignon. I would assume WWL would have better knowledge of its own ships, but I still do not have confirmation of this with BMW.

We need to get you on the DCT production roll call. There are about 12 of us on there with March DCT production.

BTW, I like your avatar.

I wish I was rich enough to charter a plane to get my car here tomorrow.
Thanks skierman... If we're not on the Mignon, perhaps we can start a forum fund to rent a tugboat to pull the Elektra across the Atlantic... If we did make it on the Mignon, let's hope they check the eletrical system before leaving Antwerp...

I'm gonna go over to the March DCT Production thread to put up my specs.

I am also on the elektra (335) and popped over to find out who else was on her.

Completely bored i did a bit of "investigation" with google earth and vessel tracker.

The first thing i noticed was that the Mignon was at the same dock that the elektra was two days ago. ( i unfortunately did not take a screenshot but i had tagged it wih google earth. Clicking the Elektra tag i saved took me directly to the Mignon)



Then i found the Elektra waiting to enter a lock just N of the Mignon. I also found some dry docks on the other side of the lock.



Here is a zoomed in shot of the Elektra and what looks like a tug waiting.



Dry Docks




Of course i could just be telling me self what i want to here: "Self, they put your car on the Mignon, its gonna set sail soon, and you will be driving it any day now!"

Here's hoping.
