Shipbuilding Division recently re- ceived a contract, valued at ap- proximately $15 million, from

Gulf Coast and Atlantic Coast, will have a capacity of 175,000 barrels. It is scheduled for deliv- ery in late 1981.

Navy and commercial overhaul and construction contracts. Re- cently, the division was selected to build a $60-million, coal-carry- ing ship for New England Elec- tric System.

Our bearing doesn't use a single drop of oil

You can conserve oil and stop pollution of our water- \ ways by using B.F.Goodrich ftefcf , _ Cutless rubber marine bear- ings. Because Moffitt-de- signed Cutless bearings use water and only water for lubrication.

The unique Moffitt "Water

Wedge" design allows just the right amount of water to circulate through the bearing. It keeps the bearing cool and flushes out harmful abrasives.

A tough B.F. Goodrich rubber liner keeps the shaft turning easily and smoothly. Keeps friction and horse- power losses low. And it makes no difference if the water is contaminated. Salt or sand-filled water, per- formance and service are not affected.

Now you can be a good environmental citizen and still get the bearing that works better and lasts longer.

Cutless bearings available world-wide through yards and marine stores. Or phone us for same-day shipment from our large inventory.
