    i had a issue with vibration in the drivetrain so i hadda rework the rear driveshaft and build a carrier berring support.
    i have had it backed in the water and run on the trailer for about 30 min or so when i discovered the vibration. Anyway im going to be makeing another attempt this weekend.

    ill post the test vids next week. sunday is the water test day. finally got the drivetrain all back together, its not like working on any other ski, its so tight in the hull that you have to remove a bunch of stuff in order to even get to the driveshafts and coplers. heres the solution i came up with to solve the vibration.
    I added a nother berring on the main driveshaft and made a bracket to support the mainshaft berrings to the seat support and rear carrier berring so there would be minuimal movement between them.
