Question 1986 F150 power loss

Can I ask if anyone may be familiar with this problem please? I have a 1986 F150 5.0 with power loss when under a load, seems to run normal until I hook up the boat and trailer, then after less than a mile a total loss of power. Pressing accelerator lighlty will get it moving but barely, pressing a little more and it cuts out altogether. Acts like a loos of fuel pressure. THe engine had been replaced about 50k miles ago, Also on this unit we have replaced EVERYTHING fuel related: rear fuel tank, both sending units with lift pumps, diverter-switch valve, main fuel pump on frame rail. one fuel line. fuel pressure regulator, injectors. Also replaced are TP, MAP, and O2 sensors. Cat. converter also tests ok, runs good until under a load. getting desperate, any ideas?!!

How heavy is the boat? Which transmission do you have? To me it sounds as if the trans may be getting too hot under load.

Sounds like a spark related problem to me. The Control Module, or the coil.
