Not sure---looks like it could be at the point of origin, or GMT. Doesn't seem to be the local time zone.

Edit 3/1: It's UTC (GMT) time. West coast is GMT -8:00.

No, I caught the back end of it going through the first lock about an hour and a half ago. (at least if it's painted red now). Had a big Wllenius on the side. The second lock cam is not working, it appears, but I'm watching the Centennial Bridge cam.

I think this must be it, Jinxter, going under the centennial bridge, and going through the Miraflores Locks to the Pacific. Home stretch!

My wife thinks I'm nuts staring at the damn computer all day!

I think they both ended up a day later than originally expected? My CA can't seem to verify if this is true - or where the Ingolstadt actually is for that matter. Do you know for a fact that the Ingolstadt is/was docked? I tried this site but it appears to be broken:

GregW can watch his boat negotiating locks and I can't even determine which hemisphere my boat is in! Dammit! I want to obsess like GregW!!!!

Do you really think there is any chance that boat is floating without my supervision and oversight?

P.S. Can you so anything about this weather?

omg, it's repulsive it's as if winter is still trying to hit a climax or something - it's my only consolation that I'm not getting my car this month. I heard spring is coming up real soon tho so hopefully you won't have any snow to worry about for long. I want to see your car when you get it

Why would you? I'm sure you have already identified some live video feeds between the locks and Oxnard, correct?

Actually, being on the East Coast, I'm just jealous that I won't get to see my ship go through the canal. But maybe, a week before my ship docs, I can pretend that it is going through the canal and watch the camera until I find a WW ship in order to experience something similar. However, if you figure out how to take control over the satellite, I would very much like to obsess through that and would be grateful if you can send me the control codes.

The Faust is now unloaded and gone. The Igolstadt started unloading an hour ago. The Faust docked, unloaded, loaded, and undocked in under 6 hrs! That seems fast - perhaps it is the ///M of RoRos?
