Great ship!!! My family and five other families were rescued by this God-sent vessel back in 1979 by the captain then. We were Vietnamese refugees that escaped by boat for political reason. We were very fortunate to have been picked up by this ship which was known as Jamunda back then. Having seen this ship in this website brought back such good memories!!! Thank you so much....
