Conquest 23 w/ Merc 225 1997 engine. Boat will rev in neutral to 5500rpm. Will only do 2500 in gear. Boat is south right now and I got report second hand. Boat shifts into forward/reverse no problem. Any ideas I can have dock neighbor try before sending mechanic out?

Thanks in advance,

First off, it is not recommended to rev any motor above 2000 rpm in neutral !

From your description it sounds fuel related and could be the high speed fuel pump.
