HI, sorry for the delay. Is the engine stalling when you get to 3000 rpm, or is it just not going past 3000?

It is stalling. Also beeping goes off like I am getting a warning. So, when the boat stop, I can throttle up to go but again it stalls out when it gets to about 3000 rpm.
I did not have the problem before. Just seem to occur after I had the overheating experience the day before. The motor is about 5-1/2 years old. Was in good shape/ not a lot of hours.

H​I, the fuel pump on your engine is basically water cooled. It may still be clogged in there and overheating under load conditions, otherwise the overheat may have damaged it and it can no longer maintain pressure. Do you by any chance have a fuel pressure gauge?
