25HP 4-Stroke Mercury Issue

  1. I am hoping someone can help me.

    I have a 25hp 4-Stroke Mercury that completely dogs out when I attempt to bring it out of the hole. It will eventually get on plane, but it takes 44444444444-ever.

    The motor is in great condition, always cleaned and properly stored.

    I will say when it is colder out the motor doesn't seem to struggle as bad.

    Any suggestions - other then getting rid of it. Would be greatly appreciated.

    a lot depends...what pitch prop... weight placement... what year motor. has the motor been decarbed lately or tuned up????/ could even be an air leak in a fuel hose.
