'87 Prostar 190 2500 rev limit?

I recently bought a 1987 Prostar 190. I bought it cheap because it didn't run. After replacing the battery, fuel filters, starter, spark plugs, points, capacitor and rebuilding the carb the boat now starts and idles well. The problem I have is the boat won't rev past 2500 RPM. Whether I move the throttle quickly or slowly I cannot get it to rev past about 2500. Is there a rev limiter on these boats when they are not in gear? So far, I've only started and reved the engine in my driveway while in neutral.

Thanks for your help
