This pro- peller is designed to give your boat more power. It's

Federal Propeller's 4- blade "Power Thrust." In- stall it instead of a 3-blade. The result is greater power, smoother operation.

Which means better handling and maneuvering. Reduced engine wear.

Better fuel economy. And that's not all..."Power Thrust" was heavy-duty designed with heavy blade edges to resist damage. So costly repairs...haul out and downtime are vastly reduced.

Available through 96" in Federal's "B" Bronze, or super tough Ni-Bral, also in Stainless Steel through 40" diameter.

Get a "Power Thrust." You'll notice the difference. See your marine dealer or contact Federal Propellers, Grand

Rapids, Michigan 49502.

Japan, with her 14th successive annual increase, remained the over- whelming leader, launching one of every two ships. Sweden was next, followed by West Germany and

Spain, each with record launchings.

Great heat exchangers- from the people who boilt the first off-the-shelf heat exchangers.

At one time, just about every heat exchanger was built to order. Then in 1939, we built the BCF, the first shell-and- tube heat exchanger in stock, on-the-shelf, in popular sizes.

Our name was Ross, then ... a name synonymous with heat transfer quality and innovation since 1917.

Today we build heat ex- changers for engines and other applications, to all current mari- time codes, TEMA "C", and

ASME codes. The CP series, in standard models and pre- engineered variations using just about every tube size, nozzle orientation, baffle spacing and material you'll ever need. And the HCF, with copper/nickel alloy tubeside for non-fouling cooling, or the

BCF where non-ferrous ma- terials and quick delivery are a must. Today there are still more of our heat exchangers afloat than any other kind.

Find out more. Call or write us. We're there when you need us—worldwide.
