Customer Question

We have a 1986 Bayliner and have trouble with the engine. We have had it in the shop more than we've had it in the water. After "repair" we put in and everything runs fine until about 1/2 out then the engine chugs, sputters and dies. We have put additive in, added a gas filter, emptied the gas, etc. We are at a loss at what to do. We love being on the boat, taking the grandkids out to tube and ski, my husband loves to fish but we are really paranoid that we'll be stranded in the middle of the lake (last time for three hours) again this summer.HELP!!!
