Maintenance Tip of the Week – Vibration 11/16/2015

Vibration is a leading indicator of engine, gearbox, shaft, and propeller problems. If, while underway, you feel an increase in vibration, or unusual vibration, the propulsion system must be inspected immediately as soon as it is safe to do so. Continued operation with damaged propellers or shafts will quickly ruin your gearbox and damage your engine (This type of repair is also usually very expensive).
