Foylebank or Cedarbank

During a voyage on the Foylebank (I think, or maybe Cedarbank) in the 1957-1958 period we were due to pick up a cargo of sugar from Cuba but, due to the revolution, we were told to anchor off for some days. We spent the time shark fishing and caught a few. When we eventually entered port and loaded the sugar (and feted by the revolutionaries) we headed for New Orleans. When we arrived in New Orleans the dockers refused to unload. We had a marvelous time while the sugar fermented in the holds. It was eventually unloaded but my memories of the time are now a bit vague and I would appreciate any clarification of the events. Does anyone else recall this trip. I think it was a twelve monther but could have been shorter.
