Fishing line damage to gear case.

Give your gearcase a quick check. With the boat on the trailer and outboard in neutral, give the prop a spin. The high-viscosity lube in the outboard gearcase should arrest the motion of the prop quickly. If the prop spins free, however, the lube could be diluted with water.

Pull the prop off and most likely you will find fishing line wrapped around the prop shaft. This will destroy the carrier bearing seal and can cause damage to the prop shaft as well. The prop should be removed atleast every few trips to check for this. Call 832-385-9970 to schedule mobile outboard repair. We come to you!(
