I am not a mechanic at all so diagnosing boat problems is not my thing. So, talked to a few people and they have all came to the same conclusion. With that said I dropped ot off at the shop to be safe in case it is something worse.


On Saturday I went to caddo. Launched the boat got on plane and ran about 300 yards and boat lost power and stopped. It would idle with slight acceleration but when I tried to get on plane it bogged down. Trimmed up and the prop still spun with normal rpms. So my first thought was spun hub. That's the consensus with everyone in have talked to but the shop told me today no signs of spun hub. They are taking it to the lake to test it. Any thoughts on what else it could be?

With what you describe, it is absolutely NOT a spun hub.

Sorry, just read where the shop said it wasn’t a spun hub.

Sounds like a fuel restriction which can be caused by quite a few things.

They said no signs of spun hub but still possible. I'm hoping it isn't anything more serious.

Mercury opti or Pro XS? If so, prob a fuel diaphragm rupture.

Agree that it sounds like a fuel issue...carbureted or fuel injection VMAX? I had a VMAX 150 that did the exact same thing. Cleaned the carbs and it ran like new again. I found a tiny bit of junk clogging one high speed jet.

Numerous fuel filters on V Max. You changed them recently?
