MarAd Seeks Foreign Cost

Computation For Retrofitting 9 Berger Group Vessels

The Maritime Subsidy Board has issued a notice of intent to compute the foreign cost of retrofitting seven tankers and two oil/bulk/ore carriers with safety and anti- pollution features to comply with the Port and Tanker Safety Act of 1978.

The computations are being made in an- ticipation of the award of a construction- differential subsidy contract for retrofitting nine vessels owned by the Berger Group of shipping companies. The proposed shipbuild- er for the project is National Steel and Ship- building Co. '(NASSCO), San Diego, Calif.

Any party having an interest in the com- putation of the foreign cost of this work may file a written statement by the close of business on March 21, 1980, with the

Secretary, Maritime Subsidy Board, Room 3099-B, Department of Commerce, Wash- ington, D.C. 20230.

A notice of this action has been sent to the Federal Register for publication.

Literature Available On 2 New Chart Recorders

From Raytheon

Raytheon Marine recently published liter- ature on two new "white-line" chart recorders which have been added to the FathometerĀ® line of depth sounders.

The Fathometer R-600W and R-1400W each use 6-inch recording paper and operate at 50 KHz. Both models have six overlap- ping ranges. The R-600W has a large-scale first range of 0-80 feet and a maximum range of 630 feet. The R-1400W has a first range of 0-260 feet and a maximum range of 1,380 feet.

Features include "white-line" operation for a high-contrast display of bottom char- acteristics and ease in recognizing bottom- feeding fish. Other standard features include switchable 20- and 200-watt power for opti- mum shallow and deep sounding, a time- varied gain control (TVG) to eliminate un- wanted echoes near the surface, variable chart paper speed from 18 to 60 inches per hour, an electronic fix marker, a "bottom adjust" feature for reusing paper, adjust- able panel illumination, and interchangeable depth scales calibrated in feet, fathoms, or meters.
