I took my boat out for the first time of the year yesterday. I started up the boat running fine but the fuel gauge would not come off of E. Yes it does have plenty of gas and the boat has less then 10 hrs on therefore cant believe I am already having a problem. Any ideas on the problem and maybe how to fix thanks.

That was my first thought, but the wife said no :)

The plastic float on the sender has probably absorbed water or ethanol and is too heavy to float up. We see it a lot in the 2009-2013 senders. If you boat is still under warranty or if you have a FPC extended warranty I would have your dealer install a new 2013.5-14 clean marine sender.

Mine has the same issue. Dealer said the float was saturated. Evidently a common problem.

Well took to the dealer and you are correct the sender was bad, they hope to have by Friday. I hope so to have for the weekend.

Well I got a call today from the dealer and the part is not in stock at Mastercraft, do not know when I am going to get my boat. Looks like this weekend will not involve me boating.

I'd go pick it up, return it when the part comes in!

I would go pick it up and use it this weekend. Just watch your fuel usage.

I would fill it up and go boating, make sure you gas up every morning before you go out.

I agree don't let a fuel gauge issue stop you from hitting the water just fill the tank to the brim and get into it :)

Ok that's what I will do, fortunately not going to a huge lake this weekend. I just did not know on a fuel sender if it would not send fuel to the motor and I get out their and after the fuel gets out of the line and then it dies, would of made for a bad day :)

Nope
The sender just tells the gauge how much fuel you have. Go and enjoy your boat.......
