My boat is hard to start to the point the battery dies before I get it started most of the time.
Once it starts, I can turn off and on very easily.
Lat season when out I also had this issue, but working the gas lever as well as cranking, it finally turned over. Another issue that may be related is every 20-30 minutes of skiing, the boat simply shut down. Once at a standstill, it would crank over just fine.
Does this sound like a fuel pump, fuel filter, need for a fuel ball to get the fuel to the motor?
Thanks for any help you can provide, I dont mind spending $ at the shop, but it is about an hours drive one way so I prefer not to if possible.
