Separate and Panicking

That should read desperate and panicking. stupid ipad.

Got my boat back from the mechanic and the second he started it I knew it was not right. It did not sound right and it smoked. There has never been a puff of smoke from that boat. Black smoke pours out of the exhaust and the motor sounds like it is missing big time. He rebuilt the carb, put new plugs in, changed the distributor cap and put a new belt on.

Does anyone have any ideas? Could the plug wires be out of order? I could not sleep all night over this. A friend of mine is going to Birmingham this afternoon and has offered to take it to Rambo but I would love to have a better idea of what has happened.
