Doods.........please tell me what I want to hear!
I was out ridin' the river today, when at the beginning of my second set, my driver shut the boat down. There was no one near us, and I motioned to keep going.......but they had "that look" on their face.
Well, they limp back over to me, and I hear "take off your board".....so I knew it could be bad. As they got closer I heard the "roughness".......and I thought there was no doubt they hit something and bent the prop. Once I got in, and shut everything down, I checked the engine compartment for any obvious problems.........I was then going to check the prop...........but before I did, I wanted to cruise and hear first hand the noise and feel the shutter. I cruised slowly, and nothing. Then faster......and nothing. I thought maybe we got something caught for a moment, and it shook free?? I ended up riding a long ass set back with NO problems at all! Checked the prop, etc...NO damage.....SOOOOOOOO, please tell me it may have been something getting sucked into the exhaust?? ANYTHING but engine trouble!!??
So what do you think??? I hate not knowing what the hell that was!!
