hello all container sailors... ;)

I will be in a position to publish a provisional schedule next week.

I realise everyone would wish to load on their doorstep, but a decision as to where will have to be made. I guess if we have a concerntration of boats in an area of the country then that may sway it, if it comes down to costs then the shippers yard would be an option.

This ball is now rolling & the clock is ticking.

Just an update on provisional scheldules.

Cost information is coming in now from Peters & May.


As mentioned the ocean transit for export is around 9 days. At the moment the outbound vessels depart Liverpool every Tuesday meaning we would have to load the container the Friday before and get on quay by close of play Friday for export. Once arrived into Montreal you will need to allow approx 4/5 working days for customs clearance and delivery to destination.



For the return of containers the vessels depart Montreal every Sunday with a transit of 7 days back to Liverpool. This means we would have to load and have containers on quay ready for shipping by the Wednesday before. On arrival in Liverpool you will then need to allow approx 3 / 4 days for import customs clearance and delivery.

This is based on a 40ft high cube container that can hold 8 if not 9 Albs, with trolleys & rigs.

Regards to All Mark...

Yes - when we took the container to the USA in 2007 I believe 6 weeks was allowed. The US customs chose our container for a random thorough inspection and it only just got there in time.
I would allow 7 weeks to be safe.
I would like to send my boat but will not know for sure for some time yet. If the container is filled in the meantime then so be it.
Cheers
Steve

This is preliminary information, apparently the route through to Toronto is an expressway so to speak.

We don't want to load the boats too early & have them sat at Toronto Yacht club for a couple of weeks, however, we don't want to miss the event due to an over zealous customs officer.

Having talked to Peters & May I'm sure they can manage things in 5 weeks, even allowing for minor complications.

I don't have any detail but the schedule for the event is spread over 14 days.

keeping you posted
