We just arrived to Lake Norris on vacation and our 2004 Moomba XLV is giving us major problems. I went to put it in gear and it stalled out and shut off. I turned it back on, and tried to get it into gear and it seemed locked up - kind of like something was wrapped around the prop, but there was nothing. We took the engine compartment off and there were a couple 4 inch or so bolts laying on the bottom of the compartment. Any Ideas? Basically, The prop is jammed and we found random 4 inch bolts in the engine compartment.

Doesn't sound good. Check the fluid level in your v-drive. I have a feeling that your v-drive seized up from no fluid. That is your transmission. Pull the rear seat forward and that heavy plastic cover off under the seat. That is where you access the fluid level for your v-drive.

are the bolts stainless steel? sounds like you lost the bolts on the propeller shaft.

I can't believe those bolts would break loose or sheer...
