I have recently purchased an aluminum boat with a 1966 FD20-C motor that was not running correctly. I have rebuilt the carberator, replaced the plugs, points, condensors and coils. When I run it at home it does fine. I ran it in neutral at home and in gear (I removed the prop) and it ran good. It has a little miss, but is acceptable.
I took it to the water and it ran fine in neutral, then I put it in gear and it seems like it is bogged down and would not open up. What should be my next step?

Thanks for any help.
