The Toreador has sunk -- through the Miraflores locks, that is! I watched it live this afternoon (in high res) as it made its way through. I will be posting a time-lapse video later showing it coming through the locks. I think I saw your car fall off, though, radiantm3.

I ordered alpine white. That means there's a 1 in 1000 chance that it was my car.

Maybe there's no berthing space for it? Although it does say that schedule is from a week ago. Another day delay would suck!
