As I write this posting the warehouse Team at Harbour Lights is unloading the container with AB118 AB118W.

In speaking with warehouse Manager, Dave Rand, Harbour Lights will start shipping to Dealers on Monday! This is a complete surprise, earlier this morning the trucking company advised me that the shipment would be here Tuesday.

Just in time for Christmas!

That is good news! My red & white team will cast off and cruise to Oregon where they will land and then cast off and head for Massachusetts. China to Maine, Maine to Oregon, and then Oregon to Massachusetts. I wonder how many actual miles they will log before they dock at my house?

I know Jim will be sending mine from Cape Annies soon. Looking forward to getting it docked next to my Eagle.

Initial shipments (standing orders) of Red and White Hulls arrived at New England dealers on Tuesday (West Coast by next Monday). The remainder of our ordered pieces should arrive in the next day or two.

Harbour Lights is working to get all of the Mackinaws out of their warehouse this week, so that all dealers can get them to their customers by Christmas.

Just received some bad news from Harbour Lights this morning. We will NOT be receiving the remainder of the Red Hulls that we ordered several months ago.

Apparantly, the container ship contained only 500 White Hulls and 500 Red Hulls, to give the dealers matching sets. All additional "Red Hulls" that we, and other dealers, have ordered over the past few months, will not arrive until February 2007.

For those of you who had ordered Red Hulls from us, we have notified you of this delay, by e-mail.

Jim

WOW! That certainly puts many a dealer between a rock and a hard place. I'm sure the folks at Harbour Lights aren't pleased either.

I'm sure many collectors were counting on having some of the "Reds" as Christmas gifts.

:rolleyes: Bob :rolleyes:

Mine was a Christmas present to myself. So I can wait until Feburary if I have to. My husband says I will have to wait until after Christmas for the curio that I asked him to build for my LLOM for a Christmas present. Maybe I will get both at the same time.
