Recently MME completed a onsite lineboring request on a 152ft/46m Yacht at the Lauderdale Marine Center (LMC) in Fort Lauderdale. MME (MSHS Metalock Engineering) got the request to perform a lineboring on 1 propeller shaft strut in the morning and immediately scramble their engineers with their onsite lineboring tools to perform the job. Once they arrived they found out that they had to increase the bores to a tolerated size and that it would be 2 propeller shaft struts instead of 1. All of this was done in 2 days and the new bearing could be installed and the vessel was ready to set sail on its new charter.
