    Hi! Backsplice and/or Ben Loyal/(Don't say Ben Dover-not on this site!)

    I met the SALVADA in the next drydock to us in Osaka,Japan in 70( 2 fantastic weeks there,and Expo 70 was on!. Even then in Japan a beer cost about a quid! Paid off with Zero(again!)
    Nice looking Cargo ship,the Salvada,and I remember the lads on her were O.k too.

    Let,s hear it for Salvesons then!

    Cheers,Davey
