Some of the reported advantages of the design are: 1) moderate cost, 2) 40-50 percent less high speed re- sistance than a catamaran or a monohull, 3) no flexible seals, 4) 35 percent less "hump" drag than an
SES, 5) none of the air cushion bounce normally associated with the
SES, 6) a simple trim and pitch control system that functions by con- trolling fore and aft air cushion pres- sures in each sidehull, and 7) a unique rapid attachment docking system (RADS). "Dual-Air" craft from 43 feet to 328 feet have been designed. Some of the uses for this design would be for motor yachts, commercial ferries and crewboats, long range fishing vessels and military craft.

Singapore Begins Ship
News Telex Service
Singapore Telecom and the
Singapore Marine Department re- cently installed a shipping news telex system which is effective within 400 nautical miles of the republic.
The system, which requires that ships be equipped with a Navtex receiver, will allow vessels to moni- tor weather, shipping conditions and other hazards.
A reported advantage to the sys- tem is that the radio officer will not have to sit and listen to the news, but will be able to read a printout of the information in English.
The system is set up conforming to the International Convention for
Safety of Life at Sea.
The information will be broad- cast six times a day in 10-minute blocks. Voice radio and Morse code will be phased out by August 1,1993, according to the Singapore Marine

India Suspends Coastal
Shipping Law To Attract
Foreign Shipping Lines
India has decided to suspend its coastal shipping law for another five years in order to attract foreign carriers to its ports. This decision was made in spite of the lack of response from the carriers during the one-year trial of the suspension. During the trial, the Sur- face Transport Ministry would allow foreign carriers to use Indian ports for transshipment as long as permission was granted and the carrier could guar- antee a minimum increase in container traffic.
The Surface Transport Ministry hopes that the five-year suspension will cause foreign carriers to use
Indian ports for transshipment, at- tract more vessels to India and speed up exports because cargo is pres- ently being transshipped through ports in other countries.
In the past, coastal trade was limited to Indian carriers only.
