Sea Ark 1652 Build

Really like your boat, similar to mine. I would frame everything with aluminum and absolutely use aluminum for your floor. If push came to shove use plywood coated with spur urethane for some of your top decking. Build it and install wood only where if it goes bad you will be able to pop it out and ...

If this was a mechanical problem what could I be experiencing? I had no unusual noise or vibration. It shifts fine from forward through neutral to reverse.
