Engine almost stalling then recovering

Thought I had cured this problem over the winter,
In the fall, leaving the mooring, the engine would drop rpms
To the point of almost stalling then recover , then repeat ..
It was pulled for the storm before I could do much, but over the winter
I pulled the carb( clean inside, really clean, but I rebuilt it anyway
.) new cap rotor plugs , wires . No water in fuel, changed the fuel filter,
P.o. Installed indigo ignition so no points, installed new coil . When the boat went in I was in a slip for a few weeks , ran it against the łines and it was fine,
Ran it out in fishers island sound a few times probably an hour a time and it aas fine, today leaving the mooring same problem if almost stalling !
Any ideas!? I'm fresh out other than possibly the indigo box is dying..
And the fuel pump moves plenty of fuel( checked it in the fall)..
I'm at wits end ,!crowded mooring with good current , not a good place for problems ... My best solution so far is dumping the boat for something newer!
