I used it the other day with no issues. Today I started it up before I untied from the pier. Started fine but was running rough. But when I looked at the motor smoke was coming out. I turned the motor off and removed battery terminals removed the cowling and noticed a small flame at the rear base of the motor. I used a fire extinguisher to put it out. I recently had a new floor put in and a new console. could a miss wired gauge do this? any thoughts on the next step? By the time I got the boat out of the water and home the temp dropped and began to rain so I have not gotten a chance to check it out
