Boat runs great and at random will just stall out. Turn key on and try to restart and no fuel pump noise. Open engine cover and play with wires at fuel pump, and reset breaker on back of engine, and wait a minute and it will start up and run fine. (don't know which of these was the cure) Has done this four or five times. Changed fuel filters recently, installed a new stereo and amp last winter, otherwise nothing major done to it. Some days will run all day with no problems, some days (like yesterday) will happen three or four times.

Any ideas ?

Check, clean, and TIGHTEN your battery terminals. Had similar problem with prior boat and it took a LOT of work to figure out the simple solution..... Small chance that is it..... if not, more competent users than I will chime in :D

Check, clean, and TIGHTEN your

..........safety lanyard switch. This will do exactly what you describe when the plastic clip is wearing/getting soft, or if the switch itself is getting some corrosion inside.
