I have a 1993 mastercraft with a 351 engine. The other day I took my boat out and all of a sudden I could not get it to idle. I had to rev the engine repeatedly up to 2000 rpms or the engine would just die. i am thinking it is an ignition issue any thoughts?

Have you cleaned your flame arrestor? Is this the first time out for the season? If it is, make sure the gas is clean.

Water/Fuel Seperator or fuel filter may need a changing!
