Thank you very much for your response. You seem very knowledgable on this set up. After reading yours and t2x's post we were able to diagnose the problem. The rigging is PERFECT on the boat..the problem is with engine idle speed. They currently idle at 1000-1050 and stall out when adjusted lower. shifting into gear at this level WILL cause damage. The engines are scheduled to be looked at and adjusted by big John of lake x next week.
Thanks for your input.
