Does anyone know why when I put my boat in reverse, 2000 130hp johson, it only feels like it is in idle,no matter how much gas I give it? It goes in reverse but at such a slow idle speed. Any ideas?

Your throttle/shift control is messed up. The pin that rides in the plate that moves the throttle cable is likely worn or broken. They can be dissasembled and repaired. www.ishopmarine.com has exploded drawings online if you browse the parts lists.
