Yau Wing Shipyard, Yau Tong

HF: In my article, Universal Dockyard Ltd,  Yau Tong I suggested that a fenced area to the immediate East of Universal was Yau Wing Shipyard whose main building had been demolished but which ran along Ko Fai Road. A map also indicated that there were slipways running from this building north into the sea. I have revisited the area and taken some photos looking down on what indeed are wooden slipways and obtained a little more information about this company.

Google.com have information and images of Yau Wing Shipyard, linked below. These show:

a) a photo from c1970
b) an aerial photo from 2010 showing when magnified the name “Yau Wing” on the roof of the buildings to the immediate east of the slipways.
c) a photo taken across the sea towards the Shipyard showing its and nearby industrial buildings

These photos show the current state of the Yau Wing Shipyard  from a visit I made on 25th November 2014. I took them from the 3rd and 6th floors of the Union Industrial Building across Ko Fan Road.
