I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.

If you have carburetors your float is stuck. It can happen more than it should and if it is a smaller engine, laying it on its side can cause it.
You would have to look at the float and imagine which way to lay the engine down in the future. The float could also be bad. You would take it out and float it in Gas, not water to see if it sinks.
If this is a big HP outboard and injected your fuel regulator is bad.
