Hi all!

One of characters of Karel Čapek's novel "Salamander Wars" is J. van Toch, a captain of a steamship who transports goods in the seas of Indonesia. The name of his ship is "Kandong Bandoeng". I assume it is a Malay language. Bandoeng = Bandung is a city name. But what is "Kandong"? I cannot find a plausible translation of the name. Can anyone help me?
