The Haminella was the first fibreglass experimental ship. We had a fibreglass lifeboat, which was too light for the gravity davits; we also had one section of deck cargo line, and one in the tanks which were an apparent success.

It was only after I had sailed on her that I discovered my uncle, Les Renton, was on the San Gerardo (1) 4th engineer when she was torpedoed with the loss, I believe, of all hands.

Unfortunately on this voyage, my first command, we knocked down number seven jetty, in Pulau Bukom, Singapore! It took two weeks to repair the ship, about a year to replace the jetty!
