I have a 2016 20...
I have a 2016 20 foot pontoon boat with a 2015 Evinrude 75 HP e tech engine. At the end of the season it wouldn't go over about 10 mph.There are no warning lights on. This started after a 25 miles ride towards the end. It did it the next few times I went to take the boat out. Any suggestions?

Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****'m a marine mechanic with over 6 years of experience.
I'm glad to help you with this issue.
Can I have your name please?
based on the information provided, my recommendation is to replace the fuel filters immediately, fuel filter and water separator. this can be restricting the fuel flow decreasing the engine's power. Also it will be good to replace the spark plugs and put fresh fuel.
Did the engine have problems to start? it was running rough?

Hi Jim. in this case it will be good to take fuel pressure measurement and test the injectors, this need to be done with the electronic technician (Evinrude Scanner), also measure compression on each cylinder.
