The tracking only works when the ship is near a coastline where there are beacons to receive the ship's transmission. It will be "out of range" all the way across the Atlantic.

HAHHAHAHAHAHHAhahAHAHAHA! That's funny!

Yeah it's somewhere in the Atlantic right now. Hopefully it didn't hit an iceberg or a large white whale.

Why does it have to be a white whale?

Fortunately for you on WW ships, they radio in position and other data. Looks like all of your cars are smack-dab in the middle of the Atlantic!

I hate Fidelio !!!!

My car is way behind on slow Cepheus leader.

Fidelio can travel up to 21 knots and avg 18 knots. While the piece of junk cepheus leader does 15 knots.

I know...and my boat is a few days right behind you guys. Turns out Nadine is a record holder...and weakening.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...57eb_blog.html

And "Fifteen" is growing more strong. Read below...it is also stating that there is a large non-tropical storm forming too:

Eastern Oregon. Seneca, Malheur National Forest. Fork and Horn this year. More of a family hunt so we didn't take it serious.

Last year got a big 4 point.


edit: Actually got 2. Shot the FnH in the AM then hit a doe on the drive to town and messed up my Tahoe light and bumper.

Original ETA was 10/17, but this link changed to 10/20:

http://www.jocsailings.com/VoyageDet...7&VOID=2385490

Also, using my VIN, this site shows 10/20 also:

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

So I think we are all delayed by a few days (so far).

Latest Update:

Looks like Fidelio is almost to the Panama Canal. I would say she's just a couple of days away. I just hope there's no pirates out there! Argghh!!

Well the Fidelio should be going through the Panama Canal today. It's not showing up on sailwx, or any of the Panama Canal Live Camera Feeds as well as on Marine Traffic. The crew probably pulled into Panama and are indulging in some fine Panamanian wenches before they set sail again for the Pacific. Arrgh!!

Dudes,

I got extremely lucky and caught the Fidelio just as it was about to enter the southern locks. These pictures are of the Fidelio going through the Miraflores locks! I watch the whole thing live on my computer at work. It was awesome! So cool to see how the locks work too! Fidelio will be in the Pacific ocean within the hour! Woohoo!!!
