I was out on the lake on Saturday and test drove a 1995 Speedster. After about 15 minutes, the starboard engine died and I ended up coming in on one engine. I tried restarting it, but it didn't turn over. Then I went home, and charged the battery and took it out on Sunday. Both engines started up fine. Although there is a lot of smoke, which I heard is common for the boat. After about 30 minutes on the lake the port engine died. So I ended up putting it on the trailer and took it home. It seemed that just before the engines died, I was throttling down to come to slower speeds. Has this happened to anyone? This is my first boat and I'm not sure if this is normal. Do the engines cut out from overheating? Is it possible that there is a short in the engine that will kill it? I just bought the boat and only had it a few days. Please help, I'm a newbie boater. I am an airplane mechanic, but I've never touched a boat engine before. I'm sure that I can get around fixing it myself, but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else.
