Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bad Vibration in the prop drive shaft

Found out the boat is running a H6 (not H5 like originally stated) autoprop purchased in 07 Nov, 2014. Chances are something is caught on the prop. Will know more tomorrow morning EST.

I have 4500 hours on the prop and engine and have rebuilt the prop twice.

Bill,
One more thing.
I am fairly sure that AutoProp is undersized for that engine. At some point that boat was repowered. An AutoProp H6 would be appropriate for a 110hp engine. I have known other SMs to keep the undersized propeller, but do not know their experience positive or negative.
