Atomic 4 Shakes the Boat

I purchased a Cat27 last summer and am hooked. She has an Atomic 4 that runs like a horse.

Last weekend as i was headed back into port (under power at top speed) the boat suddenly lost a lot of speed and the motor got loud, the boat also started to shake. I throttled back on the gas and ran it at almost idle; the shaking stopped and i made it back into port.

I had a mechanic inspect it and he found nothing noticeably wrong with it.

I took her out for a test run to see if the issue persists; it does, when in low speed it runs fine, as soon as i gas her up she starts to shake and although the motor speeds up, the boat itself does not.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?
