HELLO . i was on the Kowloon bay when it ran aground off rondo island of sumatra .in 1989.Major damage to the bow and took 4 days to refloat. then towed to singapore by two salvage tugs at a slow 3 and a half knots. the ship dry docked there for temporary repairs. then went to japan to have a new bow fitted. the photo brought back nice memories of the ship prior to the grounding. Best wishes to all who sailed on her.

Its nice to see shots of this ship. My father worked on this ship for quite a while and I took a few trips on her.

I was lucky enough to do two trips on this ship also on some of the sister ships, really great ships to work on and so well built :-D
