Today had an issue when I accelerated the boat, came up to about 2,000 rms then reved slightly, I immediatly backed off on the throttle.
I tried again and it did the same thing, headed for home at an idle. Figured engine coupler spun in the rubber housing and did not want to loose all power to the prop.
Got back to dock and decided to try it again, no problem at all ran fine.
1. has any one had a similar problem with an engine coupler spinning then seeming to be ok?
2. a charter boat had crossed fairly close to us and the only other possibility was we where still in the prop wash and the air bubbles let the prop cavitate. Never had this happen and i have run the boat 600+ hrs.
I am leary of head back out in the ocean not knowing for sure what the issue was or if I have an issue.
Please don't post theories only real world experience is needed.
