Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Was the engine drive trimmed all the way down when this was happening?
What drive and prop are on the boat?
The drive is the big unit that is located outside the hull. It will say either Alpha, Bravo I, II.
Thats fine, there are no time limits here. Just let me know when you can.
Yes. your reply will come straight back to me and we can continue from there.
What was the full RPM that you got from the engine today?
I really feel that the trim was not all the way down on the drive. If you try it tomorrow, press the down trim button until you hear the tone of the trim motor change. This will tell you that the drive is all the way down. If you were going by a gauge reading, the gauge could be bad or the sender on the drive could be bad.
It is always best to drain the black and the manifolds, just to make sure. While you are at the boat, check the oil level on the engine. Make sure that it is not over full or a white milky color.
Let me know what you see tomorrow and we can go from there.
