    Thank you. The seller said the previous owner had replaced "some wood" by drivers seat but wasn't sure why. It is also a dual prop set up ( where both props need to be replaced presently) and as I live on a pond with many shallow spots, I'm going to pass on this boat and look for something a little smaller. Thank you guys for your help,appreciated. Tom

    Carb problem?

    It ran fine at the end of last year. I was about to change the distributor cap/rotor.

    Carb problem?

    I have a 3.0 1995 Chapparel. First startup this year,the engine would not stay running. Mechanic pointed out that too much gas was going in so he said he'd take it and clean it and I'd be fine. Now it runs fine,but keeps shutting down at 3000rpms. He cleaned inside distributor cap,and I can now go to @ 3400 rpms,but again it bogs down. He said to replace distributor cap which I will,but I'm thinking the prob is back with the carb. Any help?
