I have a Honda 250 outboard on a 2005 NW Jet boat. Water in

Customer Question

I have a Honda 250 outboard on a 2005 NW Jet boat. Water in the gas problem.
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.
Customer: The boat was running fine at home. Drove to the boat launch and the motor sputters when started then stops running.
JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: We know it is due to water in the gas. I need to know how to prevent this from happening.

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Is there any kind of fuel/water separating fuel filter installed someplace in the boat between the fuel tank and the outboard?
