The craziest thing happend yesterday. I took a group of people out on the boat, picked them up at the dock, then took off down the lake only to find the boat would't go over 21 mph! speed control was off, no vibrations, felt normal rpm @ idle and starting. i pushed the throttle all the way down and nothing. i ran it down the lake for about 10 minutes, shut it off, floated around for a while, then retarted and same thing. floated around and idled some more, then took off and everything was back to normal. speed control works fine, throttle max rpm works as it should, etc etc. i had the dual fuel pump replaced about 3 years ago.

damn, that sucks. well, this time instead of buying the $500 unit, i'm going to replace the pump itself with the auto brand. did it to my buddy's X7 a few years ago and it's still running strong...maybe $95 for the pump.

i went out last weekend, tooled around for about 3 hours and no problems. then on the way back to the dock it did it again. shut the key off, sat for about 2 minutes, started back up and had full throttle. i guess i just need to pull the pumps, put 12v to them and see which one f-s up. i'll post up the model number when i pull them out. thanks for checkin in.
