So I will start back in September, end of the season last year. Last time running my boat in early Sept she ran just fine. I had a minor issue with my trailer bunks(important later on). I took it in to get winterized which includes fuel stabilization (only had 4-5 gallons left)
Fast forward to 3 weeks ago, I pulled her out of the garage to do some minor work (replace horn and such). I tried starting and she cranked over after a few tries. Lots of smoke from the fogging. Killed it pretty much as soon as she revved up,
Fast forward again to Saturday. I dropped her in the water to replace the bunks that were ate up from last season. Even though I was not going for a drive, I wanted to try and start her. Cranked strong but no start for a few tries, Then I got her started for a second and she died. Figured another try or 2 and it would be fine but had no luck after that.
Yesterday we tried starting it again with no luck. It cranks strong but nothing more... I added 6 gallons of fresh gas, but im sure that has not made it down the fuel line yet. I also replaced the plugs. They were looking wet like it might be getting flooded so I left them out and covered with a rag until I try again.
So I am thinking maybe the gas in the lines is bad and I might have to drain some out until I get fresh gas. If this is likely the problem, and good ways to do this? Any other ideas for the cause?
Thanks in advance! Please let me know if you need any more info,
