95 prostar 190 won't restart??

Running the prostar today, and noticed it was idling a little fast when started and smoking. Upon cruising speed, no problems at all. Turned the boat off to pick up a skier, and now it will not restart. Fuel gauge showing just under 1/4 tank, went through the fuel system last year-had to fix the gauge sending unit. I was thinking idle air control when the boat was not idling correctly, but would that keep from starting. Also when the boat was running rough, it sounded like it was breathing loudly ( a lot of air noise ).
Any help would be appreciated!

Update: I went down this morning, and the boat started right up! Now I am scared to take it out without knowing the problem. It almost seems like it was flooded. Please help.

Start with basics....do you hear fuel pump prime before start? Is fuel pump screen clean?

I agree , sounds like it's not getting fuel , agree with fuel pump screen being the problem , I placed an inline filter by the tank ,thought is to keep pump screen clean , (94 205)

So I took off the air intake filter and started the boat. The sound of rushing air is the sucking of air past the closed butterfly valves. Should these be open when starting the engine. They open when throttle is pressed forward.

agree as well could be starving for fuel. Also IAC and or MAP may be getting bed readings. What is temp gauge saying when hard hot start - could be bad Coolant temp sensor -
