Snapped this little boat this morning around 7:30am

They were offloading cars. The telling thing will be to see what its next port of call will be. And to keep tabs on its progress. I'll keep heading out there to see if there's been movement.

Well, If this is not our ship, then we have the "Procyon Leader" car carrier ship due in on Saturday for about a 13 hour layover. That's the longest stopover of any of them so far. But it's next port is Fremantle. Maybe they will go to asia first. I don't think these huge ships would run around empty. Moving cars makes the Money. The Wisteria Ace going to Melbourne next was giving me hopes that it would progress on north to the states. We'll track it to see. But, did any GM products disappear from the covered area at the Outer Harbor???

Thanks again for the update

Yeah did any GM products leave? It would be great to actually know if this is the ship shipping our SS sedan's, it might be safe to say that seeing how we're in September already.

There seem to be more Chevrolets parked down at the docks. I drove past again. I also noticed heaps of Red SS at GMH waiting for the drive to the docks.
I am nearly as frustrated as you guys. I have heard they want to ship about 900 SS in the first shipment not including PPV. I estimate several hundred SS (excluding PPV) sitting there waiting. I did see SS cars moving today though so probably adding to the stockpile.
I have given up guessing when they will go but will check out the situation each time a ship comes in then the ships name should be easy to sort.
I have also been told that PPV's go at least once a month and the ride takes about 4 weeks dependant on weather conditions.

I have a feeling that they backload from Adelaide so are basically empty except for the HoldenGM product. Then fill up to capacity in the Asian region somewhere like Korea.

They're waiting to be loaded. There's a boat there righ now so I'm just about to go for a drive. I'm taking my dog with me to the beach for a bit of exercise for his bad leg. Just so happens it's near the Wharf.

Did any GM cars leave the covered area of the docks yet or is it too hard to tell?? The ship "Wisteria Ace" pictured, is on her way to New Zealand. The ship "Procyon Leader" that left Saturday is going to Fremantle. There are no other vehicle carrier ships due in through Saturday unless I missed one. If we are to see these cars in mid October they must ship very soon.
