I have a similar problem but not sure what! I have a 2015 Z-7 with a 150 on it. It never had a problem before but recently it started to ( fall off pad) I have power poles and if I turn they will cut into the water and skip a little. It has always done this, but now I can be going straight and it will fall left or right and and catch! It seems to be getting worse. Any ideas that I can try? I have not changed a thing and I am not sure how to go forward. Help!
Check your prop for damage. If you have a Jack Plate check to see if it has moved and check to see if it or the motor is louse on the Transom.
watch your tack when running if the rpms all of sudden increase and the speed decreases you prop is slipping.
Something has changed to cause the boat to fall off the pad.
Also check the bottom of the boat to see if there is any damage or something is hanging lower that the bottom of the boat.
