    They might also want to investigate and/or repair the EXTREME vibration at the stern when the vessel is underway. I don’t know if it is mechanical, or prop cavitation, but you have to shout quite loudly to be heard over the noise if you’re standing on the stern.

    I find it funny how the state said the list was intended in the original build. It is now clear that was not the case. What a blunder.
