Kava Sound in the background undergoing conversion to a floating nightclub. Anyone know what eventually happened to her. Am I right in remembering Mr Le Blond's Wear Dockyard were supposed to own it and it was a case of working on her when there were no drydockings on the go?

Not ure what happened to KAVA SOUND, one moment she was there, ten a gap of visists and she was gone, just assumed Le Blond gave her up as a hopeless cases and had her broken up in situ. Only aboard her once as Kava Sound, reg in Singapore and remember her as a comfortable ship accomodation wise. Nice paint work jon of grey hull, blue upperworks, poss from Greman days, before Dennison red.
