I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.

Check your prop hub. If you have a larger motor there are rubber bushings in the hub which can slip. This is a safety feature like shear pins. You may need to rebush the prop.
You also need the proper length motor for your transom. And you need enough power to overcome the drag and weight of a loaded boat. Check and see if the angle settings for the locking pin will provide an upward thrust to the hull and not plow the hull down.
