Sokoto, a vessel I remember well, her Master at the particular time under ED was Scottish and very hospitable when we boarded during a Naval Exercise, our boarding was prolonged due to Custom's following us 15min later and finding drug's in one of the "empty" bulk beer container's meant for the Liverpool Gang's. We had to alter his declared tonnage to a Ton lighter, he appreciated the joke despite his obvious problem's.
