    2015 Yamaha FX SVHO Shaking Violently when I tried to Accelerate

    I have a 2015 Yamaha FX SVHO with less than 100 hours. I've performed all the required service and it has run great until today. It started fine and ran good at idle, just kicked into gear to move out of cove, tried to accelerate and it started shaking violently and would not take off, inspected back of ride and didn't see anything wrong, put back on HydroPort. Ran perfectly fine the day before and I've never had any other issues. It made a horrible noise as well, does not sound good. What is going on here? Thanks.

    Thank you for the replies. Is it safe to run it back to boat ramp (not very far) in gear without any acceleration (lowest possible speed) to put it on the trailer and get things checked out? Or, should I tow it with my boat? It's on a HydroPort on my dock so I don't believe I can get/see underneath it to examine the intake but I will try again shortly.

    If itís not shaking when you ride it to trailer it should be fine

    It's fixed and runs great again now! I pulled the ski out and ran into a neighbor (JC Waidler) who is also a Green Hulk member and we found a pine tree stick lodged against the prop. He had the tools, we removed the grate and popped the stick out, dropped the ski back in the water and we're good to go! Thanks everybody.
