Atlantic Marine To Lease
ADDSCO Industries Ship
Repair Yard In Mobile, Ala.
Atlantic Marine Holding Compa- ny's subsidiary Atlantic Marine,
Inc. of Mobile, Ala., will lease the repair shipyard of ADDSCO Indus- tries in Mobile.
The Alabama yard, which was recently closed, was formed in 1916 and since that time has repaired and converted all types of floating equipment.
Atlantic Marine Mobile plans to recondition and repair the floating drydock, and to seek both Navy and commercial repair work.
Atlantic Marine Holding Compa- ny also announced that it has en- tered into a separate Memorandum of Intent to take over the facilities and operations of ADDSCO subsid- iary Alabama Maritime Corporation (AMC) and will continue AMC's current new construction operation on Pinto Island in Mobile Bay un- der the name of Alabama Shipyards,

May 1983 we designed, built and supplied a 20,000-t and a 30,000-t dock for the U.S.A. as well as a 22,000-t and a 10,000-t dock for Saudi
Arabia. From June 1982 until
September 1983, two GHH floating docks were commis- sioned by our specialists at their final destination in the
U.S.A., another two in Saudi
Arabia, one in Indonesia, and one in Singapore.
Our dock construction yard is also fully equipped for build- ing floating cranes, such as the three 200-t units deliver- ed to Saudi Arabia in 1983.
For further information we shall be pleased to send you our brochures.

New Cold Welding
Repair Material Offered —Literature Available
American Durweld Sales, Inc.,
Scituate, Mass., manufacturer of the Velodur/Durmetal Coldwelding
System™, recently introduced a new emergency repair material to the
U.S. and Canadian markets.
Velodur's new "Super-Rapid CA/
HD" (Chemical Aggression/Heavy
Duty) is designed to satisfy several critical specifications by industrial and military users of Coldwelding
Super-Rapid CA/HD is capable of application to wet, oily and grea- sy surfaces which are actively leak- ing. Much like Velodur's Rapid, which has gained wide acceptance, the new Super-Rapid CA/HD cures quickly, reaching its optimum strength characteristics in three to four minutes. Together with the
Velodur Kevlar® Reinforcement
Tape included in each repair kit,
Super-Rapid CA/HD can be speci- fied in applications requiring heavy chemical resistance.
Super-Rapid CA/HD does not re- quire overcoating for optimum strength. A single application re- sults in a fast, effective repair if optimum strength, which can then be tooled, machined and painted.
Velodur/Durmetal guarantees the technical test data for all its prod- ucts as well as the indefinite shelf life of its kits.
