Monday Morning • Floating Structure Response (continued from page 54) 3951 3952 3953 3954


Our seasoned operators work surgical wonders on accident victims. We'll repair anything from a ship's nervous system to ruptured hulls or broken noses. We'll even give your vessel a face lift and paint job. We take emergency cases and long rehabilitation jobs. With three dry docks, modern, big shipyard facilities, and per- sonnel with around-the-clock service, we're ready to speed your recovery. Our estimators really cut costs to the bone too.

Give us a whistle.

Maxim sets you free!

MAXIMIZE performance and cut fuel costs too...


Why carry a ton or more in fresh water when a

Maxim" desalinator will handle all your fresh water needs? And getting rid of heavy water storage dramatically lowers fuel costs and im- proves ship performance. There's a bonus too .on long cruises you will eliminate water stops or having to take on water of questionable purity.

Maxim desalinators are available in a range of capacities from 150 to 100,000 gallons per day. Plus custom design and on-time shipment of deaerators and marine heat exchangers.
