The Left Coast Lifter

The Left Coast Lifter is a massive crane which is being brought from San Fransisco to New York to work on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.  By a strange stroke of luck, I happened to be biking on the new bridge it built in San Fransisco at the moment it put out to sea.  What luck!  Since I saw it leave the Left Coast on December 22nd, I might be able to figure out when it will get here!  All I have to do is use Google Earth to measure the distance.  It was travling about 8.2 nautical miles per hour (carefull that’s not the same as miles per hour!) when I saw it go.  That should be all I need to figure out when it will get here!  Try it yourself and post your estimate in the comments.  Let’s see who gets the closest!  Good luck!
