I can take my boat out and run it a while it works fine even if I start and stop alot. But if I stop and troll a while when I try to leave it will start fine but die when I put it in gear forward or reverse. If I keep starting and putting it in gear it will eventually stop stalling I don't have a clue.

starting and keep running

I had the same problem if once you start it and as soon as you put it in gear tap the choke a time or 2 and it will take off it is having a drain back from the carbs a rebuild is abot 125 to 175 per carb through a mechanic

Needs a tune up ! But ! They will do that before the power packs go out too! Do not disturb the battery hook up ! U do not use jumper cables or anything that can cause a short ! Promise ! Been there done that ! It will send a surge to the packs and damage them !
