Perhaps I can take a quick drive over near the water and get a pic of the ship as it passes.
I agree -- it has not docked yet. Here's an update from the last few minutes:

Yup, there's a lot of traffic there. Those other ships / boats better move out of the way and make room!!!

I can see the ship now. The tracking site is definitely faster than the actual ship.

I take that back. The tracking site is fairly accurate. Too bad can't get a clear shot as it's a bit hazy out there. I might need to drive to a different spot. Perhaps under the bridge.

Oh, yeah. They really go. Relatively light considering all they really carry are cars etc.

This little fellow was waiting alongside me while the ship was sailing past Far Rockaway.

Maybe that or perhaps he wanted to poop on my car.

Told my girlfriend me and dozens of other guys I've never met have been tracking our cars for weeks together. Her response, " You guys are cute..."

LOL, my wife thinks I'm "stupid" and "obsessed". At least my kid is only 1 yr old, he could care less.

Your car will probably be delivered before the site is updated. Been like that for years even when I got my E46 M3.

It's crazy! We've become just as interested in the ship as the car itself.
