Pacific-Gulf Marine And

A.C. Toepfer Sign Contract

Pacific Gulf Marine, Inc. (PGM) signed an agreement with Alfred C.

Captain Peter F. Johnson, chair- man and CEO of PGM.

The four ECOBOX 42 container vessels are currently under con- struction at the Flensburger

Bishop To Carry Royal

Purple Lubricants

Bishop Lubricants Inc. of

Seabrook, Texas has reached an agreement with Royal Purple Syn- thetic Lubricants Inc. of Humble,

Texas to be the exclusive marine industry distributor for Royal

Purple's products. Tests have shown

Royal Purple's lubricant formula- tions provide lubes with a tough film strength. This film, by bonding with surfaces, reportedly reduces friction dramatically. According to

Bishop Lubricants, operating tem- peratures drop, RPMs increase, amperage draw drops and wear is virtually eliminated—with engines lasting twice as long or longer.

Bishop also says Royal Purple's tough film strength allows boat own- ers to double the engine oil drain interval, so only the filter need be changed, and that oil disposal prob- lems are cut a minimum of 50 per- cent. Bishop offers a complete line of synthetic lubricants including gear oil, motor oil, 2-cycle, ATF and grease as well as a full line of indus- trial oils for compressors, pumps, etc. For more information on

Bishop's products,
