Check the compression.

A motor that has good rpm and acceleration out of water then bogs down in water can be suffering from one or more of the following:

o Low Compression
o Weak or missing spark (my money's on this one as it occurs the most often)
o Retarded timing
o Air restriction
o Fuel Restriction
o Mixture too rich/lean
