WEIGHING in at 2,500 tonnes and with a length of 83 and a half metres, the Countess Anna is the biggest cargo ship to ever dock at Rye Wharf.

She arrived last week to unload a cargo of roadstone. Wharf owner Rod Chapman says dredging work is currently being carried out to enable even larger boats.
