Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. I have some questions back to you. A 2006 DF60 is a fuel injected engine. Is the boat rigged with Suzuki monitor gauges with check engine lights on them? Does the alarm system on the boat work? Are there any alarms or check engine lights going off? When did this problem start?

Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
With the engine dieing at idle but running well at WOT, that tells us that the engine is going to either have a bad IAC or a leaking injector. Either one wil cause a motor to fail at idle and run good at WOT. You can check the injectors by removing the fuel rail with the injectors attached, then turn the key on and see if you get any fuel out of any of the injectors.
