In sloppy seas the rear beam bangs around within the hull housing. Is this usual... I think not! Has anyone else experienced this and what's the fix? i have a brand new getaway and wasn't expecting this sort of problem to happen so soon. By the way the main tram is already as tight as it could be

Geez. Did your dealer do nothing? Have you had it back for the other problems? Warranty issue.

So for sure the aft beam should not move? I thought it might be a tolerance thing within the manufacturing process of the hulls

It shouldn't clunk around back there. You might want to check the black line cord that holds the tramp back edge rod to the aft beam. The line may have worked itself loose (new line stretches for a while).
