Velvet Drive Clutch

I've been through the transmission thread and found interesting and helpful comments. My boat is not where I am right now. My sweetheart, 1984 Prostar 190, Cleveland 351 Ford, has developed a slipping habit. When I hit the throttle, I get full power. Then, before planning, she slips. No power for a second, engine spins, and then it catches right and goes great . . . until I try to pull someone out of the hole again. I read someone posted to check the fluid level in the transmission. That will be the first thing I do when I get back to her Thursday. I've read that the rebuild of the clutch is not that difficult a job. I've replaced clutches on my 1969 GTO and an old Toyota truck. I have reasonable skills, but I would never even open a car's automatic transmission. If anyone had suggestions, please, bring them on. Does someone have a link to the clutch rebuild directions so I can see what I think. Thanks

There is no clutch its a hydraulic pressure transmission with 2 speeds forward and reverse. Search this forum there are plenty of posts and step by step instructions on how to rebuild your velvet drive
This forum is amazing with quality people.: I did not think i'd ever own an Inboard. Now I finally have a gorgeous 94 205 I am glad I have ya'll backing me up.
