"Just curious to see if anyone can help me with this question. My grandfather got me a mid-1960's 14' Alumacraft boat with a 50 hp SeaKing Motor. It apparently sat for quite sometime in the splendid South Dakota weather, but after some tinkering by my grandpa he managed to get it to turn over and run. However, you are only able to puttle around at a speed barely past the idle position. It seems to spin out of gear when you throw the hammer down on the throttle, and even when you ease into it. Im just curious to see if you guys would have any idea what the problem would be. I appreciate any help that I can get. Thanks to all."
