2016 50 hp 4 stroke Mercury

My issues has only happened a few times out on the water. The motor seems to surge/bog when throttling up. I only run non ethanol rec fuel. I bought the boat used and it has low hours on it. The last time out I wasn’t sure I would make it back to the dock.


I did not get any alarms or signs of overheating. Oil levels are fine. The fox was to stop shut the motor down and wait just a few seconds and restart the motor and it took right off with no more issues.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks Joe
