Bad vibrations while in gear..... help!

Recommended Posts

So I haven’t been having the best luck with my 238.... today while surfing we heard a load noise which sound like we hit something with the prop. After that we had bad vibrations any time we’d get on the throttle. Pulled the boat out thinking we damaged the prop, but nothing!! A couple little nicks but nothing bad or bent. Anyone know what it could be? Could the slightest bend in the prop cause that???

Yes just the slightest nick or bend will cause vibration. Quit using the boat tell you get a new prop or get the one you have fixed

Agreed with above. Get your prop fixed.

^^^^^^^^^^. I hit a submerged log last year at about 20mph and had horrible vibrations above 5mph.  I had to idle back to the ramp.   I could see the damage, but it wasn’t as visible as I thought it would be.  It doesn’t take much to get the prop out of balance.  The repair cost me $180 which is much less than a new prop (I do have a spare though).   Having a spare wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

Yeah thanks guys, I ordered a new one and I’m going to send this one to get fixed for a spare. Hopefully it’s just the prop......

Got the new prop on last week and went out last weekend as well as this. Fixed the issue and thankfully that was the only problem. Thanks again guys!
