Thread: Is this bent enough to cause me problems?

    Hey All,
    I recently bought two 2003 MB Sports 190 Plus ski boats at a bank repo auction (I had to buy both, they would not separate). I don't really know much about boats. One had a blown motor when I bought it so I replaced the old 5.0 Chevy with a Fast Burn 400 SBC crate motor. I plan to keep this one and sell the other. Anyway, I took it out last weekend and had a blast in the boat, it's freakin' great! This weekend I start to get a vibration at about 4000 rpms and the motor is good for at least 6000 easy. Could the small dings in the prop be the source of the vibration or not?

    I have checked everything else, the shaft is straight, all the bearings are good, etc.

    yes get it fixed before you **** something up

    That's enough to cause a crazy vibration!

    I would say that is enough to cause a moderate vibration. You should be able to have it fixed though.

    yes, it is. it will cause severe cavitation.

    You have one seal on that prop shaft that keeps your boat from sinking. Any vibration from the prop WILL destroy that seal. On an I/O, you could run it for a very short period, but on a v-drive, forget about it. You'll sink.

    Maybe you threw a rod?
