Went the lake this morning and experienced some type of issue with the throttle control.   I backed the boat up and when I went to neutral, it died.  This happen twice and then I could not get the engine to turn over.  After I got it back to the ramp, I realized if I jiggle the shifter, the engine would starts and other times it would not.  Its acting like there is a loose wire within the shift mechanism.

Anyone experienced this issue or heard of it.

Maybe the Neutral Safety switch is loose or acting up?

That's what I suspect.

This! Has happened to me before. easy fix. The shift cable can stretch with use. There should be an adjustment at the end of the cable where it attaches to engine. Probably just needs a couple of turns to fix.
