Yes, way.
And in this scenario it is not spinning in reverse.

Made it back fine and when I went out later that night it again worked fine. Today it worked for a while, but when I was coming off of plane for the second time it started vibrating or hiccuping a little. Once that happened I motored back to the dock slow.

I don't know much about boat motors and have been trying to figure out what I should be checking. So far it seems like checking/changing the lower unit oil would be a good idea.

Any advice on what I should do next would be greatly appreciated!
Has anyone seen Fishnfreak99?

Is he making more popcorn, out fishing or crying in his soup?
