According to the pilot, preflight inspection of the airplane revealed approximately 55 gallons of fuel on board and no abnormalities were noted during the engine run-up. While climbing through 1500 feet MSL, the engine RPM began to fluctuate as the throttle was increased. After advising approach control of his engine problem, the pilot was given clearance to the departure airport. After the engine stopped running, the pilot switched tanks multiple times, altitude decreased and the airspeed diminished to stall speed. The pilot extended the flaps and ditched the airplane in the Atlantic Ocean. The airplane sank in 30 feet of water. According to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector, post recovery inspection of the engine revealed no significant mechanical problems. The FAA inspector also noted, the engine was removed from the wreckage and ran at a sufficient power setting for more than ten minutes.
