Does anyone have any info on the collision one of the e boats had in the Singapore straits in the early 90s? I think she bounced off one ship and into another? I'm sure it was an e boat.

Cheers

There was an "E" boat which bounced off some rocks in the Singapore Straits after departing Bukom, was the Euplecta I think. I remember reading the reports and the phrase "bump felt in Engine Room" was logged in their movement book. Think there was a big stink because the old man wasn't on the bridge, he had gone to send departure telexes.

Sorry can't remember a collision.

the Euplecta was sandwiched I think leaving Bukom ealry one evening must have been 1990 I think. The Old man was sacked when it was found he had been up the Bukom club all afternoon filling his boots.Apparently he was sacked for lying about his drinking not for bad navigation
