It may even be the rev limiter for get you home mode. In case of low oil or overheat.

For mine it turned out to be low oil. My oil tank had about 1/3 left in it which is enough for about 5 more trips out for me and looked fine.

Turned out when I was cruising along the engine was level and then when I went WOT the boat rises up and would think that I had low oil. It would lower the limiter and would then decrease the lower the oil is.

Jizm made a comment about the "get you home mode" so I thought id just fill up the tank to see if it made a difference. Went out and she was fine !

Note to self, have more than 1/3 oil in the tank Big thanks to Jizm or I would still be trying to fignure out what it could be....

No worries, think mine was a dodgy temp probe in the end.
