I have a 2011 DF 140 with less than a 100 hrs. It got no use last year, I know the fuel weet stall even with using stablizer. Im the process of selling and started it up and it idled fine on Saturday. Monday started up again and it shut down after about 5 minutes. I drained the fuel tank and replaced the fuel. Found that the tube that goes in the tank where the fuel line hooks deteriated due to the fuel and fell into the tank. replaced it. The motor will start for a few seconds and shut down. Purchased from Chatlee but there service department is backed up 4 weeks.

Anyone know of someone in the Wilmington/Southport area that is dependable and resonable?

Change the VST filter. The fuel wand is not getting enough fuel due to a blockage in the VST tank. At least this is what it sounds like. The sure fire way to test is to separate the boat from the engine. If you have a portable tank, attach it directly to the engine. Run the engine. If the same thing happens, it's the engine. If not it's the boat. Hope this helps.

What Luke said. Especially if you have hose deterioration as it probably blocked the filter. You need to change the hose as well.
