Any idea what that could be?
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
ith the age of the boat and the fact that you need to give it throttle to get started, it is going to be the fuel system on the engine. If this is a carb engine, you will ned to remove it and clean it. Reassemble it using a new carb kit. If the engine is fuel injected, you will need to test the fuel pressure to the injectors. If that is good, have the injectors cleaned.
