    Blue Funnel's LAOMEDON in Taikoo Dockyard, Hong Kong, 1973. This was shortly before the yard closed. During this docking, several shell plates were renewed - the only time I saw riveters in action.

    Another view of Taikoo Dockyard at Quarry Bay, Hong Kong. An interesting array of ships from CNC, RIL, etc. Note also the small crane barge (Foreman: Norman Feltham) in the background, probably off to survey and maintain the many mooring and typhoon buoys in the harbour. Comments welcome.
