Epoxo Safety Coating
Helps Prevent Slipping —Literature Available
A non-slip safety coating for ships and off- shore rigs is available from American Abra- sive Metals of Irvington, N.J. Called Epoxo, the abrasive coating helps protect personnel and equipment from accidents caused by slips and falls. Originally developed for use by the
U.S. Navy, Epoxo has been used on flight decks of all aircraft carriers since 1962.
On ships, the safety coating could be used effectively on exposed weather decks, work areas, storage decks, walkways, passageways, and vehicular traffic areas to insure the pro- tection of personnel and equipment from costly accidents. For offshore rigs, Epoxo's high-trac- tion surface enables men and equipment to maintain traction even on wet, slippery, and oily decks. It also helps prevent injury to per- sonnel and damage to aircraft on helicopter landing pads.
Epoxo's epoxy formulation resists wear with "locked in" abrasive granules that cannot be loosened. The heavy-duty liquid coating ap- plies as easily as paint over almost any sur- face, is unaffected by water, oil, grease, and most chemicals, and is equally effective inside and out.

Executive Changes Announced
By American Hoist & Derrick
Robert H. Nassau Robert P. Fox
In accord with its succession plan, the board of directors of Amhoist, American Hoist &
Derrick Company, recently announced its in- tention to elect Robert H. Nassau as chief executive officer effective April 7, 1984, the date of the annual board meeting. As part of the transition, the board intends for Robert
P. Fox, current chief executive officer, to con- tinue as chairman of the board and to remain active in the company's business. This is the next step in the orderly transition planned when the board recruited Mr. Nassau as pres- ident and chief operating officer in 1982.
Mr. Fox joined Amhoist in 1959 and held a series of management positions before being named president in 1973. He was elected chief executive officer in December 1974, and in 1982 was named chairman and CEO.
The 41,543-dwt bulk carrier Abydos shown above was delivered recently by the Chiba
Works of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding
Company, Ltd. (MES) to Misr Shipping Com- pany of Egypt. The new vessel has an overall length of about 617 feet, molded beam of 101.7 feet, molded depth of 49.8 feet, and full load draft of 35.2 feet.
The bulk carrier, first of four sister ships or- dered from MES by the same owner, is equipped with five electro-hydraulic deck cranes for greater cargo-handling efficiency, and such fuel-conserving features as an en- ergy-efficient, low-speed diesel engine and
Mitsui Integrated Duct Propeller. The main engine is a Mitsui/B&W type 6L67GFCA die- sel with a maximum continuous output of 11,400 bhp. Using 85 percent of the maximum rating, the ship's service speed under full load is 14.8 knots.
Other features include electro-hydraulic, single-pull type hatch covers, and a cargo stowage computer that permits rapid compu- tation of the trim and stresses on the hull.
Her electronic equipment includes a satellite navigation and position-finding system and a
Loran C receiver. The Abydos has been built to Lloyd's Register of Shipping classification.
