I think the motor is a 1996 DT150 2 stroke. It feels like it's popping out of gear at 1800 rpm then quickly climbs to 2800 rpm or higher if you let it. Quickly reduce gas motor drops below 1800 rpm and prop continues to push the boat. Carb butterfly's only open about 25%. Is this a limp home feature? First time in the water with this boat. Thanks..

Sounds like the prop hub is spun and needs to be repaired.
Also does the throttle move fully and only opens the butterflies a little while motor off or is this only while you are running and having problems.
