Mercruiser 220hp no top end

I have a '99 searay 21' bowrider and this weekend while running i am fine up until 2200 rpm but when i try to plane off my rpms drop and the engine dies. When i am in neutral i can rev the boat fine, it just seems to happen when the engine is under load. Anyone have any suggestions on what it might be?? Thanks for your help!

what model engine & drive you have?
Since you have Mercruser in your topic I am guessing you have
a v-6 with an alpha 1 drive?

Thank you all for the feedback, i will try chainging the water seperator, I do not have an aluminum tank so hopefully there is no corrosion problem.

check/change the engine for an in line fuel filter as well as the seperator
