2007 Beneteau 343 engine noise
I was on a 2007 Beneteau 343 last weekend and noticed a strange behavior.
Sometimes when shifting from reverse to forward the engine starts making a very bad noise. It is banging and really rough. All that has to happen is to adjust the throttle a little and it stops.
This is a Yanmar with a single lever throttle.
Any ideas as to what to look at.
It may be related to switching too fast from reverse to forward.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
