    But it runs in freshwater? :) Doesn't make much sense ;)

    You might want to elaborate a bit.

    You are getting the sparkplugs wet with saltwater. You need to put grease on the plug caps to keep them from arcing to the head.

    i would bet its water on the plugs also { had a customer who said the same thing to me this yr i figured he was drinking more at the shore haha } most of the time where you ride in salt water its ruff compaired to fresh water riding .

    Just move to Missouri. Maybe Kansas can get you further from salt water, but that's about it. ;) :D

    Glad to hear they got you fixed. :emoticont

    As I look at my boat sitting in the garage for the next few months I see why you like Florida. I talked to a guy over in the pan handle last January and he didn't know what "winterization" meant. :(
