Something is not right

Recommended Posts

SunDoo

After surfing and only after surfing, when I am heading back to shore, the engine acts up. I will typically cruise at 3000 rpm with the nose up while draining all the ballast. The throttle position is way further down than normal and the rpms keep fluctuating up and down by 300 to 400 rpms. As I adjust the throttle up or down it seems to lag. It is only temporary and will stop if I shut the boat down for awhile. It purrs like a kitten otherwise. Any ideas? Thanks.

Well, you know, with the Internet it's the shrinking world and all that. Australia is only a millisecond away now!
