I just picked up my first boat. I have done a lot of work to this thing to get it running. I took it out to the lake for the first time this weekend. It ran great. The only problem that I have is that when I was out there I shifted it into reverse and it stuck in reverse. I took it home and took the prop off from it so I could see the shifting lever it was stuck all the way down. I did manage to free it up but once I put the lower unit back together it did the same thing. It will shift freely without the prop on it with no problems but once you reassemble it there is something hanging it up. On top if that it is kinda a pain to take apart and put back together. If anyone could give me a few ideas to what could be wrong it would help me out a lot.
