...Just took the boat out with my wife 2 sons and parents who are visiting from out of state. I wanted to see the sunset from the boat and then watch the fireworks. Well, I threw the anchor and shut down the boat. When I went to restart the boat it cranked for a few seconds without starting, so I pumped the throttle a few times and must have flooded it, because it cranked for like 10 seconds without starting.
I let it sit for a little bit and when I tried to restart I got nothing. I would turn the key and not even a click . . . nothing. There was plenty of juice in the battery. All lights and accessories were functioning. I even have a fully charged spare battery I keep because I'm just that cautious.
So I called a buddy and he came out to get me with his boat. This was a major inconvenience for him to say the least. 2 hours later he was out on the lake looking for me when I tried something different. I returned the throttle to the neutral position and the boat started like nothing. I'm guessing I had the shift interrupt engaged from when I pumped the throttle to prime (flood) the carb. My biggest problem at this point is figuring out how to make this up to my friend.
