Hey Guys, might need a little help. Had the boat out this weekend and when I put the engine in gear she makes a heck of a racket. Sounds like gears slipping for a couple of seconds, but once it catches everything runs fine. Engine is a 1988 150 Johnson. Any ideas on what it could be and the severity? Thanks in advance.

Thanks Sundrop. I was hoping our resident "gearhead" would put me on the right path. RPMs were low, engine was idling as we drifted for trout. At the end of the drift when I'd put her in gear is when it would happen. I was kinda easing it into gear b/c I was afraid if I really pushed it hard it might do some kinda damage. Might be doing more by not?
