Continues to idle fine - just no throttle?
Filter or fuel pump? How hard to change?
Tank was full to start day - got down to about 1/2 tank.
Have been adding stabil during last few fill ups to get in system for winter storage.
I had those exact symptoms earlier this year and it was a bad fuel pump. Probably they are symptoms of low fuel pressure which could be caused by any number of things including a clogged filter. However given the history of these boats my money is on the pump.
Putting a pressure guage on it is a quick and easy way to confirm you have a fuel issue.
