"when the boat is in the water it won't speed up over 1500RPM, what would be causing that?"

"That's a prety broad question. Are you saying it will run faster than that out of the water?

What is the engine's top speed supposed to be?

Was there a time when the speed was higher?

Has anything been done to the engine, prop, or boat, and did the speed drop when that was done?

Is the correct prop installed? Is it undamaged?

Is the boat bottom fouled with grass, shells, etc.?

Are the fuel filters clogged?"
