    Hi all, I was with Fyffes 1974-1984. Started as Engineer Cadet left as 3rd Engineer but managed 1 trip as 2nd Engineer. Sailed on Magdalena, Motagua, Manzanares, Manistee, Bayano, Davao and Darien. All motor, no steam.
    Great time with great folk. Left when the ships started to be laid up prior to transfer.

    Hi Maurice, just looking back to see if I got any contacts. I tried to contact you before but I got no joy, perhaps you would like to chat to me now. I believe Mick fulton Is now dead, He was my best Mate at sea. You are the only person who has contacted me here. Hope you contact again.

    Hi Jerry and others. I was on Fyffes Nicoya from Jan 1950 to May 1950 doing three runs from Avonmouth to British Cameroons as EDH then QM for the final run. Great small ship which went for a few hours to a village up a river somewhere near Tiko. I recall buying a marmoset at the village for a few woodbines but said beast was so inconsiderate it jumped overboard and swam ashore Then did two trips from May 1950 to July 1950 on the Ariguani from Avonmouth to Jamaica as EDH then QM for the second trip. Not such a good ship.
