cranky inboard

alright, before I ask I know that the best thing to do is use this old inboard as a mooring BUT in liew of this....

I have a 1965 Palmer 1 cylinder gas inboard on an Islander Bahama 24. The motor starts fine and it idles fine too. When I throw it into foward, I lose 1/2 the power and after a few minutes, it dies. I can start it back up and go through the cycle again. Few more minutes and it dies again. I have put on new spark plug, cleaned the fuel line, added carb cleaner.... is there anything else I can try to get this old baby to work a little better.

Thanks....
