While cruising at 6500 feet the engine lost power and came to a "screeching halt". The propeller stopped and feathered. All attempts by the pilot to restore the engine power failed. Approximately 13.5 minutes after the loss of engine power, procedures to ditch the airplane were followed and the airplane collided with the water 20 miles east off Ft. Lauderdale and sank in 3,000 feet (920 m) of water. No attempts to recover the airplane will be made.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The undetermined malfunction of the propeller system."
