Good old Corrales.

Sailed from Liverpool with a stop off at Dakar and then Fernando Po before heading upriver into Cameroon for the cargo.
Swimming and fishing over the side whilst at anchor. Does anyone else have any memories of the "Coco Pop" fish? So called because of the noise that they made when hauled aboard. Bum boats coming alongside selling their wares were all part of the day to day activities.

Some of my most enduring memories involve coming home. Docking in Liverpool or London it was always the same. Docks crammed with cargo and passenger ships of all shapes and sizes, a sight that you don't get nowadays.
