[hi guys, new to site, my robalo 20 ft ctr console has been in 2 different repair shops since April, its an older motor , 98 150hp evinrude, got the boat at good price I thought , kid said needed a tune up, changed plugs etc, took it out in April , starts up great!! Leave dock, give it gas, nothing runs like choke is on, first marina changed power pack, said fuel tank was junk, changed to portable tanks, went to pick it up, runs great with muffs on, paid him $1600 including 2 trailer tires, go to lake all excited, same thing! Call the guy, says hes 2 busyto take it back, post on FB, another marina says he feels bad, he knows what it is, bring it to him, he actually has taken it on the lake, hes stumped!! But hes trying! Has had boat a month, any ideas?[/b]

Two things to check are see if fuel vent is clogged. Another see if primer bulb collapses under power.
Good luck

Obviously a fuel problem in my opinion. Might be time to rebuild carbs. and hold fuel pump diaphragm up to a bright light to check for holes or tears. Does motor seem to be flooding out or starved for gas?

Check it with another fuel hose. I once spent a thousand bucks to find out that was the issue. Hose and bulb were supple, but ethanol had eaten the inner inner layer and occluded the back-flow valve ... eew
