Customer Question

my new boat I just got(1995 quest cc 16'9", with 1994 70 hp evinrude), is having problems. It will only start when I hold the choke down and dies out quickly after. I did change the battery and might've hooked everything back up wrong? everything else works though so im confused. Any idea what might be the problem?
