Customer Question

I have a Mercruiser Alpha One. It was working just fine the last time I went to the lake. This time I left the NO WAKE ZONE started giving it gas when it got to around 2500 rpm it was like I had it trimmed up all of the way, the motor revved and it started losing forward motion. I stopped to see if I had lost my prop, I hadn't. I started accelerating slowly, and around 2000 rpm it did it again. So I had to idle back to the boat ramp. Help!

Hello. My name is Tan.

The hub of the prop is spun. Look at this pic and mark your prop run the boat do the marks line up?
