1. Our Associate Member, Mr Terry Little, who is an American but based in Panama will be visiting our library on 13th January 2009 together with his team from Malaysia and Japan. Mr Little is a naval architect and is currently doing research on the construction of the “Super-Junks”. He is seeking assistance from our society for information to understand the architecture and stability of such large wooden ships. Taking this opportunity, we would like to welcome them and will do our best to assist them. At the same time, we would appreciate members or friends who are able to help are most welcome to join us. You may also send us information for our visitors.
