Barrel tests are not always a good indicater of engine health - the motor is usually breathing recycled exhaust gases.

If you are forced to test in a barrel, ensure you are either blowing fresh air into the carbs, or pulling it away from the exhaust.

A bent or holed belly pan or one with a bad gasket can affect idle if it is allowing exhaust gasses into the hood.

You don't say if the motor runs OK on the boat at high speed.
