You want a little bit of hesitation when you rev the motor, just a slight lag. When you try to dial the carb in onshore, the motor doesn't have the load that water places on the prop. I know what your setup is, this outboard is not a speed demon with a poor way to make an outboard motor. On the tunnel hulled version, it has a top speed of 17 MPH. Make small changes when tuning the carb, 1/16 to 1/8 turn at a time.
