Boat hit the water before noon and ran great for two hours...hooked it to the buoy and ate lunch...hour later came out, loaded boat, but the bimini top up....boat wouldn't crank...hot as hades outside....thought it was feul filter but it was vapor lock....

have delt with vapor lock alot on a different brand boat, the way we have learned to fix it is to open the motor cover to allow air to circulate around. we tend to leave the blower running when it is extremely hot as well. we have actually had to poor cool water across the fuel rail.

Next time, rather than crank for a long time, key ON, then Off for more than 5 seconds, key ON, then off for more than 5 seconds, then crank it.
