Well, today I decided to take the skiff that I have been building out. I left the channel and popped her up on plane and was off going.Fast foward about 10 minutes and I hear a nasty rattle and boom, my outboard lockes up.I sit and played with it till TowBoat came and pulled me back to BP. Got home and I started investigating, pulled the head off and found metal chunks in #3[85 h.p. yammi] started going farther, and low and behold, #3 rod bearing decided to take a crap and welded itself to the cranks and rod. so, for 10 minutes of running i broke a skirt off the piston because the bearing failed and let it wobble at 5500 rpm's . Guess Ill be repowering sooner than i thought. can you say ETEC?
