You should have a High Speed carb adjust and a Low Speed carb adjust. If it's running fine while idling, adjust the high speed setting. If you have two nobs, its the lower one. May be set wrong. If you don't have two nobs, remove the carburator and check the jets to make sure they are completely clean or better yet, order yourself a carb rebuild kit to take care of all of this. I just rebuilt my 1971 evinrude 4hp and the carb kit made the world of difference.

SOURCE: Boat does not plane
you could try a lower pitched prop.2" would up the revs by 400 revs.,which would up the revs ,but give you more low down thrust,and/or tucking the motor under more[if you have electric trim/tilt].thats a big boat and fair bit of weight for a 40hp..my 40hp merc is on a 13ft saracen,and with two of us it takes a while to get gooing.so i bought a ProPulse prop,with adjustable pitch.been god to try different pitches

40:1, means 40 parts petrol to 1 part oil. So it's (1 litre-1000ml) divided by 40= 25 ml of oil. Even if you had an odd amount of fuel, Say 7.5 litre's-7500ml 7500 divided by 40 = 187.5ml of oil.
