When I sail fast enough my boat hums.
Does anybody know what causes it?
As I understand it, the centerboard is the source of the harmonic resonance (vibration). Pretty common from what I have heard.
My best speed so far is 5.8, and I have never had any hums.
Mine does too. It's the centerboard at a certain speed, mine humms a bit and then stops as the speed picks up.
