    "Spun Prop"?

    I was out this weekend, playing with the family. While taking a hard turn under power (20 mph?), my RPM spiked and forward propulsion died. I immediately let off the throttle. When I idle in gear, the motor will push the boat along, but once I try to put any throttle to it, the RPMs spike without any forward movement. I have a '97 200 Merc. Sound like a "Spun Prop"? I didn't hit anything that I know of but have never had this problem before so just trying to figure it out. Is the best bet to take the Prop off and take it to a Prop shop? Will they be able to diagnose if this is my problem? Thanks for any help / advise.

    Put the motor in gear, PULL the KILL SWITCH and see if you can turn the prop at all by hand.
    Most likely a spun hub and yes you will have to take it and have it rehubbed.

    Yep, goes into gear fine, both forward and reverse. And when in gear, will push the baot along at idle speed, but once you try it get it to plane, it winds out (rmp spikes...).
