I have a bent prop . but I think I have another problem . when I accelerate it wont power up like if I was trying to pull a skier . The only way I can get up to speed is to slowly accelerate until it comes up to speed . other wise no power to get off plane . but you can rev the engine up to 5000 rpm when your ae on nutrel . it is a 5.0l v8 mercruiser in a 21 foot sea ray
