    what does this sound like to the ones who are mechanically inclined?the motor starts fine,idles fine,but once i put the throttle down and get up on plane,within a minute or two you can hear it losing power and then it just dies.it starts right back up fine and will keep on doing the same thing over and over.it has done this a few years ago once or twice but never all day all of the time like my last 2 outings.it will run fine about 1/2 throttle but any more and it dies.could it be the plugs fouled out?or the fuel pump,or is it a safety feature to stop further damage?i dont wanna have to pay the mechanic,im hoping its somethin i can tackle.thanks-caleb
