I’ve been counting down the days to by “estimated” delivery date of 30th April. Working back, I’m sure it’s still on the water, and I’m fairly sure it’s the other side of Egypt still. I wonder how long it will be delayed? Anyone else in the same boat so to speak?

I heard that the route around Africa only takes an additional week. However, can the captain of your ship do a 3 point turn?

I guess it depends if it’s in the canal yet or not. It looks like someone has just demonstrated the perils of a three point turn in that situation.

AFAIK, it's 2 weeks, plus Somali pirates at the Horn of Africa & bad weather at the Cape of Good Hope.

Not looking good for Oli's delivery then. Do pirates still have parrots? Could be a good sideline for the pet trade.

I’m not sure a Tesla really fits with the whole pirate brand image thing, does it? Although at least the lack of a gearbox would mean the wooden leg wouldn’t prevent them from driving it I guess. Not ideal for the high seas none the less.

(not really making light of the whole Somali piracy issue, but I’m juvenile and can’t resist a pirate joke)
