Prop Foul?

I'd couldn't tell by your profile, if you were in salt/brackish water, but regardless, I'd first check for growth on the prop (barnacles especially) or some fouling of some sort. My Yanmar behaves similarly when the barnacles get thick on my prop-same with dock neighbors A4. It just won't spin up to speed and lugs out.

Take a swim with a mask, gloves and a scraper and see what you find. It might be as simple as that.
