crazy boat battery problem

by dj
(okc)

sunday I took the boat to the lake boat ran fine for about hour and half. we stopped and at lunch on the lake started boat up and got ready to take off and the engine stopped like it had ran out of gas. I tried to start it would crank but not start. Had another fellow boater stop and give me a jump and didnot start. So when I got home figured I needed a new fuel pump. Tonight I deciced to buy a new battery to check and see if that was possibly the problem. Started right up does this make any sense to any one?

omc 200 hp won't start
by: Anonymous

I have a 1979 weldcraft with a omc 200 hp engine. When you turn the key to start the engine it does not turn over. If i touch the positive terminal of the starter relay while someone turn the key the engine turns over and starts. what up with this. I put a new ground wire on the relay. thanks
