I am proceeding under dinghy side-tow to Marina del Rey since my engine is not propelling the boat.
I hit a kelp paddy and the prop fouled. I didn't notice until the engine got hot. Backed down slowly and unfouled the prop. Since then the engine won't drive the boat. I dove on the prop and it is nice and tight on the shaft. The transmission engages in forward gear but at higher revs it doesn't produce power. I assume there's a coupling that is slipping?
Also, although I changed the transmission fluid before setting out, it was empty when I checked after the problem started. Blown seal?
I would appreciate any tips as I don't know very much about the tranny/shaft coupling etc.
