Hello - Me and my shipping interests

23rd May 2011, 15:39

I am a new member to the forum. My interests in ships are varied from tugs to cruise ships. I have traveled by sea extensively with my first trips being back in the 1940s.

There is one ship on which I sailed about which I would like to learn if anyone else has done so this being the MV Auby of Sarawak SS Co. I would be particularly interested to know if anyone has any photographs of this ship.

I'm embarrassed to say that I have only just found all the welcome comments sent to me when I joined. I didn't really understand the forum system for a long time!! So thanks to everyone who replied and especial thanks to Dennis 'exsailor' for the link to the leithshipyards website where I have now entered some details of my voyage aboard the Auby. Derek
