Atomic 4 Slow forward

I own a 1979 C&C 29 with the original atomic 4 engine. The engine has always run great up till now.
Neutral & reverse has all the power in the world however when in forward the top 2/3 of the throttle is flat. The RPM just stay flat and the engine feels strained. Saltwater Exhaust is flowing great, new plugs, points, condenser. I have noticed that the clear inline fuel filter before the elctric fuel pump is never completely filled more than half way. This RPM is just not cutting it in a 5 knot current. HELP!!!Thanks.
