After taking the prop apart to check for any problems related to the vibration, it was stated by the service company that it had the wrong settings. They then adjusted it to something which was definitely the wrong settings! After verifying with a friend who knows what it should actually be it was adjusted to 14%. Not sure what it was initially, but now it works great and vibrations are gone. I also feel I have more boat speed than before.
