Newer Mercury 30hp 4 stroke

(Lynchburg VA)

My name IS Josh and I was out on the lake with my father in-law fishing its his Boat. We were cruising at top speed on calm smooth water and the boat died. it started right back up and ran with no different sounds. So i started to go again in the first idol speed no problem. Went to start to go faster and we got nothing. No more power it was like I wasn't pushing the throttle at all. We tried to put it in reverse and that worked in idol speed but nothing faster. I am trying to find out if i ned to take this to a mechanic or if it is something i can fix myself. Mind you his boat is a newer boat and is clean i have checked the oil and there is fuel.and it runs and starts just fine and will run forever in idol and not die.
