V Drive, will not shift into gear.

The throttle lever moves and appears to function normally but the transmission does not shift into forward or reverse. I don't have it in neutral. I did notice last week on the first run of the season some slippage/hesitation before the tranny would engage, both forward and reverse.

You might want to check the tightness of the transmission cable going to your transmission as well as the bracket holding it on the transmission. Sounds like its just not going into gear. Also, I know you already did, but did you check your transmission fluid?

My cable came unhooked when I was doing some maintenance. Scared me for a minute as I thought I had a huge problem when I went to run the boat after. Re-attached and good to go.

I finally got a chance to look into the issue and discovered transmission fluid in the bilge and none in the transmission. I think it may have blown a seal.
