2001 Mercury Optimax

I was going along in deep water at 3/4 throttle. The engine HAD been running smoothly prior to and at the time. Suddenly and without warning, I had no forward motion. I put the boat in neutral and tried reverse gear(no reverse). The engine would rev but not engage. It is difficult to put into forward ,but easy to go into reverse. Could you please tell me what the problem is and how to fix it.......My boat is a 2004 Tracker Tundra 18 ft........ Thank you in advance......Jeno Huber(Lindsay,Ontario Canada)(416)786-4330.PS: I didn't hit anything I was in deep water.
