Hi Paul you're right.It just hard to recall these words and organise the sentence since I've been decade off shipping business.
pieter melissen on Nov 27, 2021 08:00 (8 days ago)
Thanks again AAA. Do you think that at the time the of change from the Hongkong to the Chinese Registry (1985), anybody cared about the name in Roman characters? Was the name, written in Roman, part of the official registry documents?

WAI WAH was a Panama-flag ship (Hong Kong owned), and transferred to Chinese registry when sold to Guangdong Province, Hong Kong & Macau Nav Co, Guangzhou in 1985, well before this photo (with Chinese ensign).

And according to the chimney mark W,i think her name was WAI WAH when this pic tooken

Mr.Pieter,Chinese characters for both WAI WAH and HUI HUA are the same,difference between Cantonese and Mandarin.It happened a lot I think,especially oldies 60--90's.I can not found any data according Mandarin PINYIN even Chinese characters name clear to see.This picture is a good example,if her name was "WAI WAH",even I can recognise 惠华,you can not found any data of HUI HUA.

Thanks all, especially triple AAA for your interest and comments in trying to and finally solving this mystery, i knew i could count upon the many expert enthusiasts on this site.

Best regards,
to all of you.
pieter melissen on Nov 26, 2021 18:23 (8 days ago)
AAA if I understand your comment correctly, then the Chinese characters for both names WAI WAH and HUI HUA are the same? Does that happen often and are we registerin renamings in roman characters, which in Chinese characters did not take at all? In our (now defunct) data source Gross Tonnage, the name HUI HUA does not appear, but they were not very interested in historic developments. But in this case they could have been correct?

I will add my thanks to AAA for solving this mistery...


Rick Vince on Nov 26, 2021 12:26 (8 days ago)

she was actually named HUI HUA from 1985 to 1991, which corresponds to the date of the photo.

Thanks AAA...

I jhav e a shot of MARTIME GLORY, 6823454, which became HUI HUA. The typical bipod is there, so I think we can safely assume that AAA solved the mystery,

Many of these cargo JA built from 1969-75 bipod is an help for the ID...GP

Thanks pieter and Vlad for your effort in trying to identify her.

Best regards.
pieter melissen on Nov 25, 2021 07:16 (10 days ago)
Oh dear, AAA perhaps?
lappino on Nov 24, 2021 23:04 (10 days ago)
Name characters are Chinese/Kanji/Hanja, not Korean. :(


pieter melissen on Nov 24, 2021 19:17 (10 days ago)
