Transom mount Minn Kota 45 pound thrust. years old but used

Customer Question

Transom mount Minn Kota 45 pound thrust. years old but used about 3 t 4 hours total...mounted on sailboat used only for little maneuvering at dock. Battery is charged, checked voltage with meter. In water, propeller barely turns, faster out of water, in fact doesn't start turning until I hand turn prop fast as I can. Any thoughts....also, turns a little faster out of water
