Tried to take my 99 mastercraft out today to fish and the motor started fine but no forward or reverse power. Sounded like it went in gear but didn't move. Anyone know what's up?

my guess is the MC hates fishing! :D

Have you greased yor throtle cable?

Check easy stuff first like is the neutral lock out on the throttle control pushed in or pulled out. If that's ok put your eyeball on the shift cable linkage while some one moves it in and out of gear. If that's ok check the fluid level in the transmission. If that's ok call the repair shop...

I have to agree, fishing in a MC = fail
Was the prop on? I kid I kid

There's a lever on the trans that has to move to shift it into gear. Did you check to see if this was moving? If not (in order of likely hood) the neutral button is pulled out, the cable has broken, link to the shifter (on either side of the shifter) has become disconnected or the shifter is broken. If the cable is moving the shift lever on the trans check to make sure the shaft that the shift level is connected to on the trans is moving with the lever. After that you're in the transmission.

I would also say that's there's a good chance the boat just doesn't want to go fishing.

Fishing in a MasterCraft -- that should be illegal! Do you have a trolling motor on that boat as well?

hopefully it is not the clutch plate assembly. i have gone through two of those on my previous two boats. '99 prostar 205 v and '05 xstar. a messy, difficult and expensive job.

If you have no movement try rocking back and forth. Works for me anyway.:D
