I think you're right because I flushed the engine this morning and it seemed fine, oil level was ok also so I guess the water intakes got fouled and so it went to auto 'SLOW' mode.
I did notice though that during flushing the tell tail stream dropped quite substantially on occasions, once almost stopping completely. I've never really sat there and watched the tell tail during flushing so maybe it's always done this, maybe water intake using muffs causes this?? I'm taking the boat out again tomorrow so hopefully it'll be fine, although at the back of my mind I can't help wondering if the water pump might be playing up?
