OMC Saildrive engine loss of power

I have an OMC saildrive engine (circa 1980) that runs great in neutral, accelerates to high revs very smoothly. When I move it into forward, I cannot get full power out of it. Occassionally while underway, it will pick up power and run like it used to. I have checked the prop and it is clean. Fuel filter is also clean as are spark plugs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks
