I would guess on a 525efi it would go into gaurdin mode 3500? then run hot and seize?

Does anybody know what would really happen ????

I keep my boat on that river and frequent Anclote Key as well as 3 rooker. He would have killed someone of it was the weekend. The water is very calm there and the only thing is wakes from fishing charters and large fishing boats. (I have been known to get airborne).

I just got an email from one of my neighbors thinking I might get a kick out of this...Helmintoller is a Vice President for Metlife here in Tampa. Would think someone in the insurance business would know better!
