Customer Question

My 2010 115 4 stroke Merc idles perfectly! I put it in gear and go to full throttle after a minute it spits and sputters and I slow down to nothing, I put it back to neutral and after about 3 seconds it's purring like a kitten again, I slowly accelerate to full speed again and it does the same thing over and over. What could be causing this?
