SNAME SECTION FIELD TRIP—Approxi- mately 150 members and guests of the

Northern California Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers recently held a'field trip aboard a new Golden

Gate Bridge District ferry in transit from

San Francisco to Larkspur. The technical presentation included guided tours of the bridge and engine room, and unlimited access to all areas of the vessel. Operational prob- lems resulting from this initial adaptation of gas turbine and water jet propulsion were discussed and their solutions demonstrated.

More than 200 guests representing over 35 American companies attended a special three-day-long Ship's Gear Exhibition in New

York City, organized by The Export Council of Norway. Nine leading Norwegian suppliers of sophisticated ship's gear participated in the exhibition, which was held at the Sea- men's Church Institute in downtown Man- hattan.

Norway's Commercial Consul Arne S.

Fonkalsrud said the purpose of the exhibi- tion was to display to the specialized Ameri- can audience a sampling of the advanced equipment and systems developed by Nor- wegian firms, to highlight the extent and breadth of Norwegian capabilities in this traditionally important area of activity, and to give both the exhibitors and the attendees an opportunity to form new business con- tacts. "Judging from the quality of attend- ance and enthusiasm, the exhibition was suc- cessful in all regards, and we believe that the participating companies will find an ex- panded interest in their products among

U.S. buyers," Mr. Fonkalsrud said. "We hope to repeat the exhibit on an expanded basis again next year," he added.

Among the highlights of the three-day ex- hibition was a live demonstration of firefight- ing, safety, and rescue equipment by Unitor

Ships Service. Other topics covered were ma- rine electronics and advanced navigational aids, with presentations by Simrad A/S, Nor- control and Robertson A/S Radio Elektro; tanker cargo discharging systems by Thune-

Eureka A/S; tanker safety and inert gas systems by Moss Rosenberg Verft A/S and

Maritime Protection A/S; hatch cover and ro/ro equipment design by Kvaerner Brug; and valve grinding equipment by Spesial- service A/S.
