There is a lot of freeboard with those car carriers. Your car might end up in Greenland somewhere.

Either way, I hope they tie the cars down too.

They tie them all down when loading. Of course there is only about 12" of clearance between the cars, so worry away.

It was a 24-hour futurecast snapshot of Chris from marinetraffic.com. Here's hoping they're wrong.

I think youíre totally correct. Iíll post a screen shot (taken minutes ago) of the weather app. Which appears to be trash. Strange, since itís pretty mainstream.

Either way. Hope the crew and cars are safe
