Yes, I have added the following:

for (( times = 1; times < 120; times++ )); do
   echo Wait for /dev/sdb1 $times
   if [ -b /dev/sdb1 ]; then
     break;
   fi
   sleep 1
done

I should perhaps add some more lines that
comments out the /dev/sdb1 line from fstab
if the drive doesn't show up in 120 secs.
