Question about Boating
My engine was running fine for the first few months I had this boat. Last few times out the engine starting losing power. Starts fine and idles but now it dies when I give it throttle. Fuel pump is working fine, new wires and plugs, cleaned points. I'm stumped.
I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.
