vessel. It is very important that you refer to the ships drawing in order to give us the
most exact information.
The drawings attached are described from type 1 to type 6. It also includes a blank for
which you can draw your ships type if your vessel does not correspond to those already
drawn.
The drawings are related to the sea water cooling of the main engine and generators.
Could you check off the boxes numbered 1 to 36 that relates to your cooling system and
return the information by e-mail or fax.

system, check off the boxes and return it to the following fax : 1-418-648-5106
If your choice is to reply by e-mail, you send the number of the boxes you checked off.
Ex: For a vessel that has recirculation of water to the pump with an automatic temp
control and equipped with a connection to the sea chest for steam and compressed air,
your answer by e-mail would then be: 3, 4, 5, 26, 27.
