Its the bottom and the prop growth.

Don't worry about expensive things like cutless barings, shafts and engines. it will be the barnacles on the prop and grown on the bottom.

First Mate Yachting Services have a diver contracted to them. Give them a yell and get your bottom done then give it another go. It's a cheap, simple cure to what appears to be a huge problem.
