Mercruiser 3.0LX 1994 hesitates when quick accelerated

My 3.0LX hesitates and sometimes stalls when quickly accelerated. Even no so quickly. Im have changed spark plugs and cleaned carburetor. Can it be related with the bow's high lifting and the carb's float adjustment (too rich)?
Thanks.

check the accelerator pump and diaphram..... that's quite often the culprit for acceleration issues....

Boat ran better after rebuild but I think I need to re adjust the float. The hesitation is gone, but the RRRR's don't pick up like a V-8. These motors will not Jump out of the water. Also I used the spring loaded seat vs. the solid, Adjust float to which needle you use.
