Normally there is a whole series of questions as to it's last use, storage, and any specific's of "not starting that you are experiencing.
Assuming that it is turning over adequately by electric start, I would suggest that you look at the plugs. If they are dry, then you have a problem with fuel delivery. Spraying starting fluid into the carb intake should get a pop and a few turns out of the motor. If not, you likely have a spark or compression problem. Check for proper oil fill level. These motors won't start when low on oil. Each possibility has a long chain of test and repair procedures. If you can chase down a liikely cause I may be able to help you further.

I have a new, first s ason and broken in 20'hp honda outboard. Full choke fine starts first pull. After warm up and leaving at dock for 20 minutes it restarts hard with and without choke

Hi Ira:
Honda's are notoriously reliable, so, since it is a new engine, I'd be heading straight for the shop where I purchased it.
From personal experience, every one of the different pieces of equipment that I own has slightly different starting characteristics.
Once you determine the "routine" for your outboard, it should work the same way, every time.

What weight oil does the honda 5.5 engine require?

Your Honda 5.5 hp engine specifically calls for SAE 5W30 engine oil. Use a good quality oil in the engine, and change it every 50 hours of run time. The pump will take 30weight non-detergent oil.
Using non-detergent oil in the engine will probably void your warranty, and will certainly shorten the life of the engine. Non-detergent oils have not been recommend by engine manufacturers in nearly 20 years.
Oil is cheap, go ahead and spend $4 - 5 on a quart of high quality oil. Your engine uses about 20 ounces per change.
