I was wondering if anyone has a picture of the Company launch in Hong Kong.
I did a drydock there in Benstac and she was a regular visitor every morning. No doubt dropping the Old Man back aboard after an All-nighter.
I understand that Benbeg means little Ben. Very aptly named.

Regards, Roy.

Hi Roy,
I think the launch in Hong Kong was the Benbhui.

Thanks for the correction EBenarty. You are spot on. She was named Benbhui.
She was a great looking launch so someone must have taken a picture of her somewhere along the way.

Regards, Roy.

If my memory serves me well Ben Line did have a launch in Singapore in the 1970's called the Benveg which indeed means the wee Ben !!
