Question about Boating
I would get a new primer bulb. I have had a similar problem on my outboard and the primer bulb was causing the problem. The bulbs will go bad and I have even purchased a new one that was bad and had to be exchanged. I would be interested to know if that was the problem. Hope this helped. Good luck and good fishing!!

The primer bulb is only used to pump fuel at startup, if the motor died at full speed this is not the primer bulb. By the way a clogged fuel hose, or dirt inside the primer can cause troubles at any stage.
You can replace the fuel line from tank, just in case.
Just ensure that the problem does not occurr because of air being sucked on the lines, this is a common problem on outboard motors and it is difficult to sort out. When it is air bein sucked into lines you usually get smoke before the motor turns off.
If that happens at full speed it is probably a clogged fuel pump.
Unplug the two small pipes connected to the fuel pump and blow them with a compressor check if something can obstruct the fuel pump.
If there is a fuel filter (it looks like a plastic cylinder on fuel lines) remove it and replace it.
If still no luck then you can check fuel pressure on the lines to find out where the problem is, and also clean the carburetor.
To read fuel pressure use a tool like this:
Actron CP7802 Vacuum and Fuel Pressure Tester .
