I just installed a new 112 on the boat and tried it out for the first time. When I first hit the button it seems to shimmy a little for a second and then goes away. I have never had one of this power so I don't know if its the size or the shape of the 2 blade prop. Does anyone elses do this

Is this at 100% power?


Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right.

That's not right I wouldn't think.

I have had 2 now and did not see any kind of shimmy when pressing the button...may double check that all is tight.

Mine is a smooth running beast at all speeds. A friend has one on his bow fishing boat no problems.
