Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
What kind of RPMS are you getting? What sized boat is this?
Also, is there a story or history behind this, when did the boat last get to speed properly?
Hi Mike. Are you getting any kind of speed out of the boat at all? Or is the engine just getting to 3000 rpms and no higher no matter how much throttle you give it?
What needs to happen is the engine needs to be tested for compression and spark output. Compression testing requires a compression gauge. Spark output can be checked with either a timing light or an adjustable gap spark tester. Are these things you can do yourself?
Are you doing this yourself or would you have a tech do it?
