Hi all, I have an 89 prostar, this year we have had the boat out four or five times but the last couple times the boat has developed a serious vibration then snuffs out. It will restart but no chance of idle. Luckily my MC treats me good and waits till we get back to the boat landing before acting up. When I looked at it, noticed the carb dumping in fuel as we tried to restart, then noticed the oil smelled like gas. The carb was rebuilt and cleaned two years ago by the previous owner, boat has 360 hours on it (still a baby), is something sticking in the carb, is it the carb at all?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

nevermind, actually found out the float was adjusted on one side by previous owner, leveled it out and the boat runs better than ever. thanks anyway
