Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 560 searay sedan. at 14-1900 rpm I get a vibration. we changes props, shafts, did alignment, everything we could think of and still have it. it seems to lessen with full fuel tanks and gets worse as the tanks empty. help, I'm lost..

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

The boat has only 900 hours and runs great.
