Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Bummer Rick - hope you get the problem solved quickly and inexpensively, but inexpensively isn't a boating word.

Here's a quick video of last Sunday, a day that the wind was not supposed to blow. We had gusts to 32 that day - great sailing.


Shawn and Dave, the salmon will go into the smoker this evening.

Just curious - did you (or a mechanic) first confirm that the vibration does not occur in neutral?

Jealous! Will be at 5th grade picnic with my youngest. If lucky, I might get to check on the status of my boat later... or tomorrow...

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I'm headed for the boat to do some more varnish work, and tomorrow, it's my grandson's 10th birthday, so pop-pop has to be there. If the weather isn't too brutal on Sunday, I'll be headed south to deliver some smoked salmon. It's not my best batch, mainly because the electric smoker element went on the fritz shortly after the fish went in. Consequently, I had to jury rig my gas grill into a smoker, which does not produce equal results.

All the best,

Gary

TakeFive, we did confirm no vibration in neutral. The damper plate is fine.

I had a refit done over the winter on our new to us boat at Zimmerman Marine in Mathews VA. There was no vibration before the refit, but the plastic shims under the forward engine mounts were badly compressed and the engine mounts were 14 years old and showing wear. So, engine mounts and engine alignment were part of the refit. When we picked her up in May and started up towards Herrington Harbor we had vibration between 2200 and 2400 rpm. The Zimmerman team at HHN has been working the issue, including multiple test drives, short haul for inspection, realignment with and without the drive saver (added by the previous owner), to no avail. So, we're still looking for the root cause of the vibration.

Cheers, RickG

4 1/2 hours from Inner harbor to Broad Creek on the Magothy anchorage. Beautiful sail and we were gifted with this sight as we were preparing dinner. (Bacon wrapped scallops and grilled shrimp over grits)
