You could try Class which I guess was GL back in those days, they may have microfilmed plans in archives. Alternatively, try some of the museums in those locations. Good Luck.

I found Lloyd's foundation really helpful.

They hunted down several plans I asked about and sent them out within two weeks. Good luck.

CLUB HARMONY was stricken from the Marshall Islands Registry during 12 May 2014. No idea where it was registered thereafter. Whilst under MI flag I do not believe it undertook any commercial activity.

Ummh, the tear in the hull plating running aft from the stem, roughly located over the bulbous bow warning mark and in line with the lower lever of the hawse pipe opening on the port side of the container vessel. Stretches almost as far aft as the draft marks located on the perpendicular.

Whilst premature to make any worthwhile comments, rather speculation,  it should also be considered that the container vessel may have been an overtaking vessel on a converging course. the damage on the stem cannot be seen entirely but the initial strike point coinciding with the destroyers weather deck appears from this photo to be more to the port side of the stem. (not sure what the bulbous bow is like but that would have opened up the destroyers hull to some extent. It is also a question as to whether the destroyer was seen or take seriously as a target (on the radar) and whether the destroyers design contributed to its own demise. An interesting point these days is that a moderate percentage of seafarers and I am talking deck watch keepers have no idea of the arc of visibility of a stern light. When asked they invariably say 180 degrees for all lights. In other words they simply have no idea. Just conjecture. nothing more!

I stand corrected. she was at the Jiminez area and alongside between 1800 hours 12th June and 1800 hours 13th June. (no position change during that approx period). Joe Shell are still operators. Sinokor may be charterers. I have assumed local time, owise allow time diff of 8 hours.

Hello seas2fly,  are you discussing a port that appears to go by the name Lahad Datu by any chance. If so there are three jettys one of which may have been occupied by Silver Eburna

Very pleasant looking craft, It looks alive. I like the garbage drum on the poop rails, nice touch. I guess not allowed todays age of statutory Marpol! Did you build the hull, plank on frame, and what materials have been utilised. ie. the usual mix of wood, plastic, and anything suitable that comes to hand. What scale.. maybe I missed that somewhere. Cheers Greg

Like to thank everyone who contributed to my query with details of where to look. Finally Lloyds' had a few plans which were presented gratis. Also an old Sea Breezes mag going back 8 years had some great photos of a previous modellers 1:200 model and he kindly sent many deck photos of his own model. Thank you all. regards Greg (I can only wish that I had taken more photos of the vessels I sailed on.)

The Lloyds Article referred to by Timsen starts with the following:-

"Six serious deficiencies were found in the vessel this February but it was allowed to sail without any detention."

Ok! Mr Lloyds journalist, can you be more specific, we can all check Tokyo Mou, but how do you happen to know the seriousness of each of the issues raised--- do you even know what they were and what was said (written)?? Furthermore in your opinion why should it have been detained as you so righteously suggest!

So quite frankly Mr. Journalist, your hyped article as it currently appears, is not worth a toss. It is a disgrace.

It is indeed funny but sadly everything in this article is fact. Recently had an incident where a technician was flown 8000 miles from the country of ownership to repair a gmdss setup (one component). He arrived but his baggage containing the item apparently required, was lost in transit and arrived two days later. The operator was up in arms due to lost charter hire, as vessel was under psc detention for other matters too.

In desperation the technician boarded the vessel at a remote anchorage, cleaned and overhauled the equipment thoroughly and it worked!!! (No spares fitted!).

The vessel was back on hire. It seems to me however that operators have all sorts of tax defying gadgets to hand to look after themselves and a book of excuses when it comes to payment for knowledgable services rendered...


 
13  Shipspotters all over the world / Scale Models / Re: Decals on scratch built models on: December 16, 2016, 02:54:23 pm
I construct models at 1:200.. there are ready made decals available that can be attached and look perfectly alright. They are advertised in various modelling magazines. However I also type them up on my computer and print them onto transfer paper which is quite readily available in this part of the world. I cut them up and attach easily to the hull.If I want colour transfers I can achieve the same effect but must get the paper printed at a shop which does paper colour printing, using the same transfer paper I would use on my home printer.

Thanks Davidships, I will explore that avenue too. People working in our London office have some very close links to LR. Not completely certain why I didnt think along those lines earlier. Cheers Greg

Hi OceanCraft,
Many thanks for the information. In fact it is planned to call the vessel MANDAMA which was the name given to TAUPO when it changed hands into the Blue Star Austasia line fleet at Marseille back in the early 80s (I think). I was chief officer on it.. Lovely vessel in my eyes then but in its heyday it would have been stunning. I would very much appreciate your information, as everything is useful at this stage of planned development. marview@netvigator.com. Cheers Greg.
