Boat runs great when under power but if you idle very it

Customer Question

boat runs great when under power but if you idle very long it shuts off and is hard to start back up or it takes a hour to get to stark back up
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. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

When was the last time the engine had a full and complete tune up? That would consist of a new cap, rotor, plugs, plug wires and all the filters.
