I had an issue with my 496HO this weekend. As I attempted to get on plane, everything was fine until I reached about 3,400 rpms. Then I got a solid beep from the motor, and it gradually took the rpm's back down to idle. At first, I was able to resolve the issue by powering down the boat and batteries, and then restarting. Once I got past this issue, boat and motor ran great. But after a day of this, it now shuts me down everytime I reach about 3,400 rpms. I took it over to the dealer yesterday for them to put on computer, but haven't heard back yet. Was just wondering if anyone else has run accross this.
