    Sounds like your carbs need to be cleaned. Low speed circuits are getting plugged up.

    Pump diaphragms going out; pump discs going out; internal screens getting clogged, etc.

    Is your boat still stock? Does it still have the accellerator pump working right?

    When you pull the accellerator trigger a couple of times, you should actually hear fuel being squirted into the cylinders. If you do not hear the fuel, continue to pull the trigger. Do not pull on the trigger while you are cranking.

    If you still can't hear it, then choke it and then crank untill it starts.

    This is for a stock boat. If you have an after market system i.e. manual primer system, all of the rules change.
