Line Of Buoys And Floats
Seaward International has pub- lished a new 32-page booklet on its complete line of Sea Float marine buoys and floats. This booklet includes complete speci- fications, such as net buoyancy, weight and diameter, on each type and model of buoy and float.

Ameron marine coatings meet quick turnaround requirements of tuna fishing vessel owners with high-performance coatings like Dimetcote® E-Z II, a new generation inorganic zinc in single-package formulation which reduces application labor costs and is easily applied.
Commercial vessels around the world depend on Ameron marine coatings like Amercoat® 70, a controlled-release flaked copper coating with economical anti- fouling protection benefits.
Barges protected by exterior
Dimetcote/Amercoat marine 32 plifies buoy selection, and the separate section of alternate end fittings adds design flexibility.
Sea Floats are resilient surface floats for marine and offshore ap- plications. Typical applications in- clude use as anchor pendant buoys for offshore pipelaying and crane barges, semisubmersible drilling and workover rigs; use as chain support buoys for single point mooring buoy pick-up lines or hoses; mooring buoys, and marker buoys. Seaward Interna- coatings arc also protected by interior tank lining systems like
Amercoat 64/386. This cpoxy system resists a broad range of chcmicals and solvents.
The world's first fleet of 326,000 DWT Very Large Crude tional also manufactures a line of floats providing subsurface buoyancy to 400 feet of sub- mergence — the Deepfloat.
The Sea Float buoy was devel- oped based upon the technology of Seaward International's Sea
Cushion® foam-filled fender.
These buoys are constructed with a rugged filament reinforced elas- tomer outer hull. Inside the Sea
Float are two types of closed-cell foam. The outer layer is semi- flexible to help absorb impacts.
Carriers depended on the world's leading inorganic zinc primer,
Dimetcote 3, as the foundation for an effective marine coatings system which produced dramatic economic benefits.

Gulf Coast, Midcontinent and
Rocky Mountain areas of the
Mr. Logue will be involved with geophysical operations in the Texas Gulf Coast. He will be based in the company's Opera- tions Headquarters in Houston, reporting to Rex D. Womack,

Two Drilling Units With
Hydranautics Hydraulic Sys- tems, Goleta, Calif., announced recently that two of Stewart/
Stevenson's inland drill barges will each be equipped with a
Hydranautics drill floor skidding system consisting of four 150-ton mechanical Pin Claw Base as- semblies and a control console.
The two semisubmersibles are the first in the industry to be de- signed with a drill floor that can be moved both longitudinally and transversely.
The first of the two submersi- bles is already being operated by
Temple Drilling Company, Hous- ton, Texas, near Freeport, Texas.
The second, for Phoenix Man- agement, Houston, will be used for drilling in Texas, Louisiana, and in the Gulf of Mexico.
