Boat will not start. burnt fingers......
(Fl Keys, Fl)
hello, i was just trying to take my boat out and it would not start. I had been having the problem a lot sense I had gotten the boat. It wants to crank but not start. I have to keep cranking it for a long time. After it starts it will run for ever and even start back up with no problems. This time it would not start at all and I saw that the battery was smoking. Then I "dumb" put my fingers on the battery top and burnt the crap out of my finger.....now im typing with one hand. What should I do? I also saw yesterday that some white stuff was leaking out of the Mercury 125. Im lost..... thanks for the help. Also, I had the throdle in nutral and pushed up, and I pumped the fuel ball also. I have a 18.5 2001 Wahoo with a 2002 mercurey 125 (4 stroke). Thanks for any help!
