Pontoon motor runs and goes in forward and reverse but will not go faster when engine revs up. Why???

by Mike

We have a 24' 1987 Funtoon Pontoon. It has a 25 horse Mariner motor. The boat refuses to speed up in forward or reverse even though the motor revs up like normal. Very confused with the problem. Revs up, goes in gear, but with no speed increase. Any diagnoses would be much appreciated. Thanks

Pontoon boat won't go faster when the engine revs up

Take your prop off and have it propped repair shop check the plastic sleeve inside because it sounds like it is slipping if that plastic sleeve slips it will not turn the prop
