All of these fenders are foam filled. The advantage of foam filled fenders is their high energy absorption performance, with low reaction forces. The strong durable outer skin of each fender is produced of a high abrasion resistant material. This outer skin is further strengthened with fiber applied with a filament winding machine. The result is an outer coating with the ultimate in strength and durability.
NOTE: The InterTrade coating will not mar ship surfaces as rubber does.

Six Passenger Vessels
Floating Through America Inc. (333 East 30th Street), New York
City, plans to build six small pas- senger vessels to be used for cruising in domestic waters.
The company applied to the Mar- itime Administration for a guaran- tee of a construction loan to build the 175-foot vessels at Bender Ship- building, Mobile, Ala.
The total cost of the six vessels was estimated at $36 million. The company sought a government guar- antee for 75 percent of the financ- ing.
Delivery, according to the compa- ny, was expected between Septem- ber 1986 and June 1988.
The intention is to use the 49-pas- senger craft, which were designed for a crew of 14, in the "waterways of America."
