Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Mercury outboards are cataloged by serial number. Do you have that number handy?

No don't

Hi Brad. Without that serial number I don't know which engine you have (there are different versions of the 115). Have you checked fuel pressure to see if it was dropping fuel pressure while underway? Have you done any other troubleshooting other than changing the filters? What kinds of questions did you have for me?
