99 Maristar 230 Low RPMs

I have a 99 Maristar 230 with the 330 MX Max LTR Marine Fuel Injected Indmar engine. Full throttle boat only gets to about 40 mph (would normally get to 50). If I pull up and down quickly on the throttle it gains rpms each time and I'm able to get to max speed doing this. Boat runs a little rough at idle. Changed TPS, checked spark, checked fuel pressure: at idle -35 and under load - 35. In neutral boat revs fine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Check that the knock sensor is connected. Its on the port side above the starter. This is sometimes disconnected when winterizing.
