    '88 Evinrude 15hp I'll be going along fine 1/2 throttle but I go to full throttle and its like the prop comes out of the water just started doing this today. Its like the spindles turning but the prop goes know where. Let off of it then resume at 1/2 thhrottle again just fine. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is that very hard or expensive?

    Take it or send it to a prop shop and they will rehub it at about half the price of a new prop.

    Take the prop off and remove it from the shaft and take a sharpie marker and make a mark from the inside of the hub where the shaft goes through and make it to the out side of the hub and reinstall and run it. When it does it again pull the prop off and see if your marks are out ofline. You can also remove it and some times you can see little rubber bits inside the hub where it has slipped.
