June 2011 I represented Matn’s Stabilizers as supervisor for installing a pair of ship roll-stabilizers in Labuan, Malaysia. I was asked to install the stabilizers together with the ship engineers. The stabilizer arrived in a large wooden crate and had to be disassembled on the spot to make it small enough to install the parts in the ship.
Besides disassembling we had to install a reducer in the existing hub of the previous stabilizer. Naturally a cavitation between the existing and new hub had to be dealt with. We filled the cavity with liquid metal, a very strong polymer that was casted from inside the ship.
