Hi Bob,

Thanks for the comment, yes, she was listed on the PLA site, first for 15-00 on the 17th then went back to 14-00 on the 18th, she is showing in the cruise diary as TBU on Sept 28th, but not sure if it is her or the sailing vessel.

She went out in her old colours but I understand she has been sold to new owners.

I will always try to be there for my friends who are unable to make it due to work commitments, I remember what it was like when I was working.

Kind Regards

Nice one Ken, I was hoping to see her go but as it happens, was at work anyway. Was she shown as sailing on the PLA website, didn't notice it myself or I could have made time for her :-(
Saw her as WALRUS out in Hong Kong years ago, hopfully she will be around as AVH again in the future.
