boat won't stay running
PLEASE HELP !!! I had some previous 785 start issues which i partially fixed by filling the fuel lines in between the tank and carbs with fuel and putting fuel down the carbs when starting.
Now the boat fires up fine and revs alot better, but it still bogs and dies with any more than half throttle or 15 seconds of running. I'm stumped...either this thing is just taking forever for the fuel system to fully prime or something is wrong in the carbs. I know the fuel lines aren't clogged so could the carbs have "gone bad" over winter. (I used fuel conditioner and stabilizer when I winterized it just the same as I did for the past 2 years when it ran perfectly fine. Any ideas???
Sorry for the long post but I just moved to the chesapeake bay and I haven't got to ride my 785 once which is a tragedy!

He Trav see if you can find a ramp that you can leave the boat in the water and run it for a few minuntes. using the trailer to hold it and see if you can nurse it up a little higher on the throttle. (good luck finding this ramp on memorial day weekend) I wouldnt go changing any parts yet.

yea I thought about it today but i wasn't sure if that would be too rough on the motor. Sounds good though, I will try tomorrow after I leave the office.
