C350 Vibration Noise Survey

We just brought Chips Ahoy! #232 home from Huntington, L.I. to Staten Island, NY.

A rather nasty vibration set up as we passed under the Verrazano in a 3ft chop and 23kt blowing on her nose. Couldn''t make the vibe dissipate by varying rpm''s. It finally stopped when the seas settled as we turned into Great Kills Harbor.

She got a little noisy earlier in the trip when the chop picked up for awhile.

She''s Hull #232, Wing, three bladed prop, 13hrs on the 35B.

Other than this...a great trip in a beautiful boat.
