Last time I went out my boat would not plane out. When it wasn't in gear it would rev up just fine. But once I put it in gear, it would'nt pick up rpm's and go.

Took it to a boat mechanic and he checked it out and said the coil was bad and replaced it. Does this seem right? I am supposed to go out this weekend and don't want to drag my boat to the water and be SOL again.

Carbs do that too. If it does that next time out, if you give it gas and it doesn't go, hit the choke/primer and see if it picks up. if it does, it's carbs. By the way, don't run it like that, it's just a test.

Well, he went through the carbs too. Took it down and it still didn't plane out. Now what?????????? Power pack?

Pretty easy thing to replace is the fuel pump diaphram. That can cause you problems too. Should be on the port side of the engine near the front.
