RPM Drops In Forward

The last time out the RPMs were 'normal', we could get 3000 RPM in forward. A couple of months went by before we could take the boat out again. No changes to motor/drive train during that time.

Next time out, 800 or 900 RPM was best we could do in forward, so we turned around, back to the slip. Asking around, the collective knowledge all pointed to crusted up shaft/prop. Two months ago it was cleaned.

This is the first time back at the boat. Same issue, mostly. Now I can get 1100 RPM in forward sitting in the slip, no more. In reverse, easy 2500 RPM, in neutral, 3000+. Any ideas? Thanks.
