Re-occuring water issues
So i figure id start a thread about a weird problem ive been having on the water ever since i sunk the boat. Boat will run 1000% great and then randomly when i least expect it too it will start sputtering real bad/ only run on 2 cylinders. I can put around at light throttle and be fine but as soon as i lay into it it starts to get choppy and break up real bad. We check the plugs and it appears that a few drops of water are down where the spark plugs are at. Dry everything off and plug it back up and it runs great until it happens again. Initially we thought that maybe i had some residual water somewhere and it was still workin its way out. Now it appears that maybe water is dripping down from my seat onto the motor and possibly gettin past the rubber seal around those black things that cover the plug.
i dont know if anyone else has experienced anything similar but id figure id throw it out there anyways.
i also think that maybe my IC is leaking but i really dont know.....its a brand new H/E from Fizzle with less than 10 hours on it so i really wonder if thats even a possibility...

have you checked the fuel pump pick up filters?
when plugged they let the motor idle and at wot starve the motor of fuel
do you have a afr gage

did you get any water in the fuel tank?
if it was missing because of spark the afr would go pig fat

Did you check your coil packs???
I've seen motors act up without warning because of a coil pack starting to take a dump..

Did you remove your intake manifold and get all the water out of it? Water can pool up in the bottom of it and cause similar issues to what you are having. I think it is unlikely that this is your problem though.
It would not be water entering the hull from under your seat, there is no way it would make it down past the spark plug thread and into your cylinder.
