and from the repair area. The Lem- vig Lift has no winches or tracks, and no pulley, cables or wheels to rust or wear out. Offshore Industries claims that it is virtually trouble- free, easy and economical to oper- ate, simple in design, and beneficial to both yard operators and boat owners.
Equally as well suited to marinas as to commercial yards, the Lemvig
Lift can be designed to accommo- date any size vessel—from 30 tons to as large as required.

Cooper Bearing Offers
Free Catalog, Booklet On
Marine Roller Bearings
The Cooper Bearing Company,
Virginia Beach, Va., which was one of the pioneers of split roller bear- ings with main components made in halves, is offering a free general cat- alog and marine applications book- let on their roller bearing products.
According to the company, the unique design of the Cooper Roller
Bearing, with the main components made in halves, permits bearing changeover in a fraction of the time required for solid units. It also has one of the most effective seals of any roller bearing pillow block, thus pre- venting the entry of contaminants, which is one of the main causes of premature bearing failures.
Cooper Bearing reports that sav- ings in maintenance and downtime can be substantial without sacrific- ing capacity or speed. And because of their strict quality standards,
Cooper expects the roller bearings to have a long service life.
Prompt technical support is available on company products from
Cooper Bearing's engineering de- partment.
