My sailboat has developped a loud vibration at 2200 rpm
. I inspected my propellor and managed to get it under control after I aligned my prop shaft, but the cure didn't last. I noticed that some of the engine
mounts' screws were stripped in the engine bed
, which is made out of wood
and glassed inside the hull
. I am planning to poke the engine bed
to investigate the extent of the rot
Should there be rot
localised acround the screws, what would be the best way to fix it?
Should the wood
be rotten through, what essence of wood is commonly used to make engine beds?
Thanks for your hep
