Strange engine sound

ntarbellntarbell Member Posts: 1

Any idea what this sound is? It's coming from a 2019 Sweetwater 2286 with a 2018 Yamaha 150hp engine. It only makes the sound occasionally and when we put it in neutral only. Dealer isn't sure and we wondered if anyone here had any suggestions. Thank you in advance!

    Almost sounds like the starter is trying to engage. Run it on ear muffs with the cover off and you may be able to pinpoint the noise.
    I wouldn’t run it until you can determine the source. 

    I would make sure the dealer is aware of the issue and document the complaint. If something costly fails down the road - it’s documented and may be a warranty claim.
