Blohm + Voss Awarded $3.4-Million Contract
To Renovate Cruise Ship
The Hamburg yard of Blohm +
Voss in West Germany has received an order from Sundance Cruises of
Seattle valued at some $3.4 million for renovations to the 26,747-grt lin- er Scandinavia. Sundance, a consor- tium of the MacDonald Corporation of Seattle, Johnson Line of Stock- holm, and Effoa Finland Steamship
Company of Helsinki, bought the cruise vessel from DFDS Line of
Denmark last November. To be re- named Stardancer, the Scandinavia was completed in 1982 by the Dubi- geon Normandie yard in Nantes,
The liner is due to arrive at the
Blohm + Voss yard on April 10 this year, with redelivery scheduled for "the 28th of that month. B + V is understood to have been the low bidder for the conversion job, but the deciding factor may have been the fact that the Hamburg yard had the available berth to meet the very tight schedule.

Transit System —Literature Available
Sigmaform Corporation of Santa
Clara, Calif., is offering a free four- page color brochure on their new product line GK-A60 Multi-Cable
Transit System that is designed to pass multiple cables from one com- partment to another and maintain fire, gas and watertight integrity.
The system has been accepted for
Navy shipboard installations in ac- cordance with Naval Sea Systems (NAVSEA) publications, and also has been accepted by the U.S. Coast
Guard for use on U.S.-flag vessels in
Class A, B and C bulkhead and decks. It complies with the Interna- tional Convention for the Safety of
Life at Sea (SOLAS) A-60 fire tests and is approved for A-60 class bulk- heads and decks. It has also been accepted by Lloyd's Register of
Shipping and by the American Bu- reau of Shipping.
The brochure contains color pho- tos that illustrate the simplicity of steps necessary to complete the GK-
A60 Multi-Cable Transit System, beginning with installing the endfit- ting compression plate into the frame, then installing the first row of cables followed by the stay plate above, and then additional rows of cables and stay plates as required.
The fill-in plate is then installed and the top bolt tightened until all air gaps are removed between pack- ing modules. The system is then complete.
Specifics, along with line draw- ings, are given for vaiious parts of the assembly for the system, such as the frame, endfitting compression plate, fill-in plate, stay plate, and packing modules.

GK-A60 Multi-Cable Transit Sys- tem,
