Question?
Are there two fuel pumps on these boats (mine is 94 prostar 205 with 350 Chev)...one on port stern side of engine by fuel filter and one in fuel tank?

You checked the pressure- did you purge the air from the gauge? Your pressure s higher than it should be on a '95- normally, it's 30 pounds. Don't replace the pump if it's not warranted.

How old are the plugs? Old gas? Have you ever looked at the fuel pickup tube that's in the tank? After 18 years, it's time to do that. Also, look for a fuel shutoff valve connected at the outlet of the tank- if the lever isn't in-line with the fuel line, it needs to be. Does the exhaust smell like gas?

Your pump shouldn't be that much. The boat shown with your name is a '95- that's correct, right? If so get the part number from the existing pump and google that, not the Carter in-tank pump, which you DON'T have.

Only one pump, on the engine.

Thanks JimN, and the filter that is often discussed that needs cleaning, is that in the pump or in the fuel tank?

They started using the in-tank pump/filter in 2000, IIRC. You may have two filters but they can't be cleaned. If you have one at the tank, make sure to change that one first- it catches the large particles.
