Because this new fishfinder/plot- ter interfaces with most Lorans hav- ing standard NMEA 0182/0183 formats, Apelco makes it easy to enjoy the latest plotting features available without purchasing a new
Loran. In addition to its standard full-screen color fishfinding, the
XVC 8100 provides full-screen zoom close-ups, and split-screen plotting with fishfinding, or split-screen dig- ital navigation data display with temperature graph.
The Apelco XVC 8011 automati- cally adjusts its 800-watt (p-p) max- imum transmit power, pulse repeti- tion rate, and transducer beam width. Shift range from 5 to 995 feet, fathoms, or meters is automat- ic or manual. Clarity is enhanced on this 256-by-256 bit, high-resolution screen, by keyboard selectable scan- ning speeds, 10 levels of brightness, and advanced interference and noise suppression circuits.
When its Plot Mode is active, the
XVC 8100 lets you plot and track up to 20 events, recording position, sur- face water temperature, and depth of each event. The plot display shows own-boat on the screen, plus route of selected event marks. When selected, the XVC 8011 will elec- tronically draw a dotted line from own boat to selected events, and give distance and bearing to events. commerce plctely dedicated to improving your bottom line.

Nedlloyd Seeks Tenders
To Build 15 Containerships
Rotterdam-based ship operator
Nedlloyd recently announced plans to build 15 new containerships rang- ing in size from 3,000 TEUs-4,600
TEUs, and has invited tenders from
Europe and the Far East to con- struct the vessels. The price for the 15 ships would be approximately $750 million.
The 15 containerships would con- sist of five vessels of 3,000 TEUs for delivery in 1991, with options for five of 3,800-TEUs and five huge post-Panamax-sized 4,600-TEU ships for delivery between 1992- 1994.
The 3,000-TEU ships will have a length of 872-1/2 feet, breadth of 106 feet and deadweight of 30,000 tons. The 3,800-TEU and 4,600-
TEU vessels both will have a length of 964 feet. However, the 3,800-TEU ships will have a breadth of 106 feet and deadweight of 43,000 tons, while the 4,600-TEU vessels will have breadths of 124 feet, larger than the Panama Canal can accom- modate, and deadweights of 51,000 tons.
