Please help

I have 2006 x2, I was surfing to day and alll of a sudden the entire boat started to vibrate. We took home slow and it doing vibrate but as soon as we accelerated it would start. Got it back on my lift. No rope in the prop everything's solid. Could this be something in the shaft? Some water was coming out of where it goes into the boat. Please help. This may ruin my weekend.

Sounds like you hit something with the prop. Small ding will cause havoc.. been there done that. Swap props and try it

Prop is smooth. First thing I checked. We were in 40’ of water. Didn’t hit anything.

Rudder feel tight? Tracking fins straight? Oil in the tranny? Any motor vibration if you rev in neutral?

Rudder is fine, no dings in the prop or shaft. We did no wake speed all the way back. No issue until you try to take off. No tracking find in my boat. I am at a loss.

Vibrate in neutral when you crank it up?

Neutral seems fine. Just when you ramp up over 10 mph. Even the dash was shaking

You hit something. Even something small can make it shake like hell. Been there man. Bent shaft and prop.

Sometimes a prop can bend and it can be hard to see. Sure sounds like a bent prop
