MPS have arrived but cannot get off the ship!

The first container of five MPS have arrived in Cape Town on 5 December 2013 however due to a SE wind of over 40 knots they have been unable to upload the container for the last two days.  Here is to hoping that the wind dies for a few hours and we can get the “toys” off the ship!  We are told to be PATIENT!  Would you be patient in these circumstances?

MPS Skiffs on way to SA – ETA- 5 Dec

The container ship Ningbo Express is now mid Atlantic on its passage to Cape Town with its precious cargo of five Musto Performance Skiffs.  The current ETA  for the ship in Cape Town is the evening of 4 December so it is going to be a tight schedule to get the boats cleared and out of the container by the weekend.  Fingers crossed ….

Some interesting stats on the Ningo Express:

  • Length: 70.5  Musto Performance Skiffs
  • Width:  9.4  Musto Performance Skiffs
  • Current speed 17.3 knots ……
