She is moving along steadily at 12.6 kts, heading 87 degrees. About 292 nm to go.
Getting closer, and seems to be on schedule for 23 September arrival. Nordhavn company policy prevents me from being present for the off-loading or for the transit to Dana Point. I don’t like it but I understand. In July 2009 a Nordhavn 56 Motor Sailer was dropped while off-loading at San Diego, ultimately sinking. The freak accident is interesting MOSTLY because of the exceptional response by Nordhavn to make the new owner as happy as possible. Its a great story of customer service. Nordhavn 56 Story
I’m not worried about this kind of accident but I would find the ship handling interesting to watch. I’ll get plenty of time with Lucky Stars shortly.
BBC Nebraska is underway with Lucky Stars and N5276. I decided to start tracking her with Marine Traffic Satellite Service. I was on the fence about this until I read about super typhoon Meranti. Nebraska should be out of the current cone, but that was enough to motivate my $15 subscription upgrade. So today here she sails about 2700+ nm behind her and about 3400+ to go to San Diego.
