I recently was given a 1976 28' slickcraft flybridge with twin 233HP Mercruiser 305 and staright shafts ( no lower units)( from my potential future Brother-in-law) and i picked it up yesterday. The motors run solid but I was only able to get the starboard motor up to 2600 RPM. He said everything was fine a month ago when he last took it out. However, he was trying to sell it and the guy wanting to buy it wrapped a line around the shaft of the starboard prop. I cut the rope off and ddi not notice any damage. Any ideas as to why the motor would only get to 2600 RPM?

Here is a picture of the boat we acquired this past spring. A project in work, we have requisitioned replacement OMC sterndrives, and and are in the process of getting the starboard 302 running. Possibly just a timing problem. The intermediate housings look to be satisfactory and we have a replacement steering cable assembly for the tru-course system.

The rest of the boat just needs a spring cleaning. We have our fingers crossed, but so far looks good for the $1K total investment!
