Not familiar with that specific motor but had similar vintage smaller HP Johnsons. From my experience it sounds like it could be that the high speed carb adjustment is too lean. What I would try is running the backing off the high speed screw 1/4 turn to 3/4 turn, then test. If works better, screw back in in 1/8 turn increments until the problem recurs, then back out 1/4 turn and leave it there.

If your propeller is OK, your lower unit will need some repair. It may be as simple as a clutch dog worn and not engaging the gear. Usually they give warnings of problems by jumping out of gear though.
Other possibilities are broken driveshaft, propshaft, or gears. If it goes into reverse the shafts are OK and the clutch and forward gear become suspect.
It was common for these engines to break at the top of the driveshaft where they were tapered.This would give you no motion at all and no previous warning of a problem.
Check the gear lube for metal particles and signs of water intrusion. I hope your repair is an easy one.

2 stroke is rated at 100 to 1... but I always run it a little more like 50 to 1. I would rather put plugs in it than burn up a motor for lack of oil......

check all the fluid levels, make sure the service work up to date, if you stretched the service like the oil, transmission fluids you brake down the formula of the oil. than you loose the performance of that fluid. smooth run.
