This past weekend I was making a turn and RPMs shot up and for a second thought I was trimmed to high even though I trimmed down, pulled throttle back, made sure I was trimmed down and pushed forward on throttle and boat didnt move. I tried to put it in neutral, but it wouldnt go, so I killed the engine. I checked prop to see if i can move it by hand, (still in drive) and I could move prop, but rough turning. Does this sound like drive is gone? Its a Bravo One XR.

Drain the oil and look for pubes and smell it.

Sound like it may have blown the floor out of the forward gear but if you dont see alot of metal in the oil when you drain it that would be another indicator.
If you get lots of metal fillings and even chucks it will be a gear set if not both which would require either a rebuild with upgraded parts or a full replacement which may be cheaper in the short term but maybe not in the long run depending on the power your running and the weight of the boat.
