The "Joey Boat" is Still On Duty


ROCS Lan Yang (FFG-935) is the former USS Joseph Hewes (FF-1078).

I've mentioned her here and showed a photo of her during a port visit to Barcelona in the 1970s here.

The Taiwanese have heavily modified the Knox-class ships that they received. I have no doubt that they've probably rearranged some of the internal spaces. Long-term crew habitability might have been sacrificed, for it's not as though any of the ROCN ships make six-month deployments. But I'll bet that I could still find my way around one.
