Just as I made the turn to get on the river and went to WOT, the ol' battlewagon just started to rev up, and didn't go anywhere. As soon as I went down to idle, it was ok... I could only get to about 1/2 throttle, before it started to rev.

Motor runs fine, starts right up, sits there and hums.

Before I take it into the shop, can anybody give me any ideas of what this could be? Something I can fix myself? I can get an entire lower unit and swap it relatively cheap.

Or, should I prepare a disposal ritual, and send it off honorably?
