Question about Boating
150 hp mariner outboard runs, but don't have power to get boat on plane. Runs good in reverse, but will has no power in forward.
I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.
