2008 Honda 4 Stroke 30HP
by Craig Young
Hit a submerged object with props. A couple of tiny dings but nothing more. Less than a second. And I was only just running faster than idle.
Since then, the engine revs fine. However, the propulsion seems to be "slipping". Engine revs but vessel is limited to about 1 knot under load. Goes in and out of gear fine. All fluid levels are fine.
Appears to be some kind of limp mode.
I quickly tilted the engine and accelerated the throttle and the prop spins faster as expected....but not under load.
Thanks in advance
