JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

Hello Rick. My name is Tan.

This sounds like an ignition issue. Do you have a timing light to check spark on all cylinder when running boat?
