There are two things to look for. With the motor off disconnect the shift cable. Pull the boots off the plugs so the engine can't kick back. Grab the shift lever directly on the motor and pull it in the direction reverse is. Turn the prop and you should be able to feel reverse click in. If you just barely feel it "tick" the gears, the shift rod inside the housing is not adjusted. If the reverse "bites" into place as good as forward then leave it is that position. Next, line up the shift cable but DO NOT connect the end with the shift lever. Put the cable in reverse and you will see a gap from the old setting to the where it has to be to work correctly. Then its as simply as adjusting the shift cable to match the lever.
The second possibility is the rubber hub in the prop. It could be slipping. But usually its gone in both directions when this part breaks.

Hold the carb in your hand in the position it is in on the motor the float and the carb body should be in line with each other. What year and what type of motor,these directions hold true for 90 percent of outboards. Jim OMCRetired Mech

Fuel mix is a common cause of this kind of performance. Take special care to follow the manufactures instructions on fuel mix, most modern outboards run on100 to 1 while it is easy to continue an older mix like 50 or 33 to 1. Sometimes the mix is written on the engine cowl.
