Calm waters when your car is on a boat

I have noticed that everyone that has their car on a boat is "seems" calm. Is this because you can view your boats status every day? Or that you know its actually going to be here soon? Or you refuse to look at teh boards because it reminds you of the wait?

I sure hope I will be that way once mine jumps on a boat.

They are praying for the boat not to sink or roll over.

If it does, Epacy's head will roll.

Now that I know the layout of California ( thanks Greg), my car arrived at Port Hueneme yesterday evening according to my CA.

Seriously, you want calm waters when your car is on the boat, so I guess you must act that way when your car is in transport to please the calm water gods!

It seems I cannot track my boat on open waters so I just trust that it will get here, just like every other car I've owned. Still, tracking would be nice...

Hey, but you'd know where it is and stop calling BMWNA!

I call everyday although there is nothing exciting going on. Just got into the habit of. I have to ring them up as I leave my place in the morning and walk toward my car...
