    15f water in no. 1 cyl ???

    I have an '09 15f, has done 310 hrs.it does run in salt water. Very happy with it. It has a hot start problem. Most times after a run and 5 to 10 minute rest on restart it drops 1 cylinder. it starts fine but idles rough for 5 seconds then ok. It still performs as well as new except about 3km/hr off top speed. no water in oil. remove plugs to find slight rusty stain on no 1 plug. any ideas or help is much appreciated...thanks..

    Have you replaced the plugs and checked the strap on the New ones?

    Yes it always starts OK but most times it missfires on one cyl for approx 5 seconds. The no 1 plug is a bit tight on removal due to the bit of rust on the threads that protrude into the chamber..thanks again for your help. cheers
