Cookie arrives into Portsmouth

Weds March 3rd and our container with Cookie and house gear is unloaded at Portsmouth from the Fyffes ship M/V Elsebeth. The guys at MMD Shipping did a great job of getting all cleared in with customs and we were ready to go and pick it all up on Friday. My stepbrother - Barnes and brother in laws - Dave and Phil all rallied to our help to give some muscle to the project. Huge thanks to all 3 who gave up a day off work to come and help out. I hired a big van and car trailer to handle the load and we had a perfectly clear and crisp winters day for the drive up and back. Special thanks to David Spencer and Gary Nolan of MMD for allowing us to unload at the port.

  1. Hi Rory,

    Glad to see that Cookie arrived in good shape. Looks like you have your hands full and are having lots of fun getting her ship shape for the Jester.

    We'll be following your progress closely.

    LOL, Frank and Menna
