Welcome to the forum. How many rpms are you turning at 50mph and does it sound like you are cavitating at all?

By cavitating, I mean does it sound like the impeller is catching alot of air. I am not sure what rpms you should be running at 50 but I think those rpms are a little low for WOT. You should be more around the 8000 range. Stay tuned. Im sure someone with a little more knowledge will come up with a few more ideas.

No cavitation by anymeans, like I said it feels just like the learner key it has slow take off and low top speed. Thank you loopie

Welcome to the forum.
In order to help figure out what's going on with your ski, try to post up some more info. You say everything is stock except for the washers but also let everyone know if this is the first time out this year (after winterizing and if you added stabil) and if you've changed the plugs or any other routine maintenance. Also, if you can take pics of your impeller (intake and nozzle side) and let us know if you see knicks, dings, etc. in the blades and also make note of the gap between the blades and the wear ring.
IMO you should first make sure you have fresh gas and change the plugs. If you try those two and still have a problem come back to the forum and give us as much info as possible.

I am guessing your ski is an rxp according to your user name. Is the ski supercharged or N/A
