Had an issue in December that I thought I should post. Boat started in driveway and ran for about 10 seconds. Would not start at the launch. Hauled it home and tried again. No luck.

I could smell gas so it was getting fuel. I checked the spark—good. Mechanic came and started by replacing the plugs. It started but was running rough…and a a high throttle setting. He took off the flame arrestor and she roared to life. Apparently The flame arrestor had dropped down or had been pushed down to interfere with the choke lever, locking the choke in position.

I’ve been modifying the engine box as I assume that someone leaning or sitting on it, compressed the flame arrestor.

Frustrating time but back on the water.

Here’s our first video of Fly Boys up on plane:
