5.0 Mercrusier stalls during takeoff?

by Paul E
(Ontario, NY)

I purchased a 2006 Crownline 220 EX with a 5.0 Mercruiser with an Alpha 3 drive. Had it out 3 times the first week with no problems. Took it out today and everything was fine until we took off after having it anchored and swimming for awhile. Under full throttle trying to plane the motor shut off twice. It quickly started up each time then was fine all the way back to the dock (about 15 minute run at 25-30 mph. Not sure what caused the stalling? Checked oil level and it was fine.
