Default Motor problems

Had the boat out yesterday and it ran great for about an hour then all of a sudden, started sounding deeper and couldn't get the rpms up. Couldn't get the boat on plane.

Pulled the cover and everything looked fine, then saw this. Not sure if this is just a ventilator/breather line, but I hadn't seen it before. Comes out of the bottom of the engine block. What is this supposed to run to? Its a Johnson 225HO btw.

The power surged back on/off a couple of times leading me to believe that there may be some faulty electronics as well. Just wanted to post here before I start digging into it.

Nope its the crankcase ventilation hose and it plugs into the aircleaner at the top. Someone on another board helped out with it. Hopefully that plus checking all of the electrical connections will stop the problem.

I don't think a crankcase breather hose would cause that. You just get an oil residue in the immediate area. Fuel problem? plugged filter? Fuel pump?

Agreed. Its not a fuel issue as I have that all worked out and this feels very different. i'm leaning towards electrical and I need to take it on another test run as I believe after reconnecting all of the wires, etc its running right.
