Got my boat back after just a day at the mechanics. It had lost power (1500rpm max, instead of like 4800rpm., and was VERY hard to start.) Naturally this happened after I was out like 8 miles from the boat ramp, lol. Anyway, the boat has been back, have been out on it for three trips, and its run flawlessly. My question is this, and although I realize each boat is different, but what would debris in the area of the anti-siphon valve have to do with this ? (I could understand if it were in the lines, carbs, or filters.)
Its a 1999 Sea Pro with a 42 internal resin tank, with a C-90 Yamaha o/b. I did have a more expensive carb cleanout job two years ago, suspecting that the ethanol finally "got to it."
