cptn_steve replied to Sherry's discussion Best way to prevent the engine block from vibrating
"There should be two set screws on the shaft side of the coupling.  These will keep the shaft from moving fore and aft.  They should also be wired together with stainless steel wire to prevent their loosening. I'm attaching a photo I…"

"Don't quite know what you mean with the shaft shifting.  The only thing that comes to mind is the shaft slipped aft out of the coupling a bit.  Is that what you meant?"

"Just as a side note, don't do any prop shaft alignment while the boat is hauled out.  That must be done in the water as you can have some torque of the hull while on the hard and mess up an alignment."

"Ha!!!  it is interesting how information comes out.  I'll bet you a dime for a dollar that the prop has not opened up fully and causing an imbalance.  A barnacle in the wrong place could very well do that and prevent one blade…"

"Well, it most likely is one of two issues then.  Alignment or a prop issue.  That is my story, and I'm sticking to it.   :)"

"it could even be the prop got bent a bit.  a diver can do a visual check on that too.  He should know how to do that.  Remember hitting anything while motoring?"

"The only way it could be the alternator is if there were and extremely heavy load on it, meaning your batteries charge level was very low.  If you have a shore power charger, this should not be the case. As far as if a wire were broken on the…"

"If it runs rough while not in gear, it may not be running on all cylinders.  I'd check each cylinder by loosening the fuel line at each injector one at a time while it is running.  If air is in the system, it will get pushed out and…"

adjustable jib sheet leads

I am considering a new jib for my B40.  To improve light air performance, I may go to 145% or 150% which means I will need to be able to reef more easily as the wind pipes up.  Has anyone added adjustable jib sheet tracks?See More
