    Well went riding yesterday for about 6 hours.Ski ran great until we where done,the engine is reving up but its like the impeller is not moving.I can let it run without gasing it and it moves,but as soon as i gas it its like something is sliping?What does this sound like to you all?? Thanks Gary

    Could be the splines on the drive shaft have been stripped.
    Or the coupler has failed.

    yes the coupler is on the rear of the motor the shaft from the prop goes into it .pull the cover off of the shaft bearing and put a pair of channel locks on the shaft and hold back on the coupling and see if it slips .
