    I presume you meant hurricanes the weather version. The 'Canes as in Miami college football seem rather befuddled.:D

    Another shot from the portevergladeswebcam shows that she has sunk several feet to just about the top of the orange strip along her side.

    Perhaps by early morning she will be low enough in the water to start floating her guppies off and the parade will begin!

    Seems like the heavy lift/cargo ship next to her has a few yachts onboard as well?

    Yeah, looks like 2 are on deck, maybe last to be unloaded. Am I right? I see a "Trinity" and a "Westport 130" on YachtExpress.

    Cheers,

    She is now at the level where she should be able to start off loading her babies however the weather is overcast with rain and drizzle so we will see how enthusiastic the crew is about getting started.

    There are some people moving about perhaps untying lines so maybe the show is about to begin!

    "Norwegian Queen" looks good on the outside but hideous on the interior! Of course that is my opinion!

    Gee, I thought cane was in reference to the old Snowbirds escaping the New England cold and arriving in Florida for the Winter season.

    The unloading was delayed a few hours, but all seemed to go well and fast once they were ready to start untieing us.

    Thanks for the insider close up shots!

    I am amazed at the variety of sizes and types boats that are transported around the world in such a seemingly simple process.

    I am also glad to see that Impulsive seems to be alive and well!
