Aberdeen Press & Journal 17th December 1966:
'Duburg Launched at Last'
'The 6000-ton cargo ship Duburg, which defined two launching attempts last week from the Aberdeen yard of Hall Russell & Co. Ltd., took to the water without ceremony yesterday.
Said a yard spokesman, " we took advantage of a favourable opportunity and there was no hitch this time. Everything went smoothly. The fact that it was a very mild day probably helped. The vessel is now at our fitting out berth for the process of completion."
The effect of low overnight temperatures on the slipway lubricants was blamed for the initial failure of efforts to launch the ship - the first vessel built in Britan for German owners since World War II.'
