Vibration

Recommended Posts

Read that you will help out fellow ski boat owners, looking at a very nice Brendella Pro Comp. on first ride boat has a vibration felt thru floor when under power. Since I have not owned a ski boat before but have owned a few I/O's, wondering if this is normal? Thanks in advance!

Prop has a ding in it. You may not even be able to see it. Take it to a prop show to get balanced.

Could be a few things. Probably not normal though. What year is it?

Could just be the boat. Some vibrate more than others.

It's not a big block is it?

Does it have a spare prop you can try?

Take a ride in another old inboard to compare how bad the vibration is.

If it's not the prop, it could just be an old wood construction boat that's starting to rot. Check the engine mount lag bolts to see if they're tight.

It is a 1993 with 380 hrs. Very well kept. It is the stock 5.8PCM. A mount bolts are tight. No vibration at idle or when you rev. Thank you!

Thanks Jimmy, will look into this. Just trying to make sure it is not something major.
