Question 96 Maristar LT-1 "restart problems"

Hey guys hope all is well. I have started having an issue with restarts the last couple of weeks and need some help/ideas.

So the boat fires up off the trailer and runs great with no problems at all. When we shut it off and restart within a couple of minutes or so it also fires up and runs with no problems. If I shut it off and we set for 30 minutes or so when we go to restart it will turn over fine but will not fire and if it does it is sputtering and running very rough for a few seconds before it dies as if it not getting the right mix of fuel/air. To resolve it the only way I have found is to open the hatch for about 30 or so minutes and then when I go to start it, it fires up and runs fine. Just wanted to see what people thought before I go to making changes because it runs great just doesn’t want to start after it gets heated up in the engine compartment. I didn’t know if the is some sensor or something that may be going out that could be an easy fix. Thanks for any info..
