Bogging motor

I have a 75 hp Mariner that runs real well once planed out or at lower speeds. It just bogs a little bit while its coming up to plane. Its not a major problem, just a bit of an annoyance that I would like to work on. What do you guys suggest it is? Dirty fuel filter? Any help is appreciated!

What year? Could be dirty carbs, of if older I know they went to hotter plugs back in about 90, from our '87 90hp. It made a huge difference for us.

Good luck.

Sounds like the beginning of a dirty carb to me...

Try running some sea foam or 2+4 through it and see if it makes any difference.

If not it may be time for a carb cleaning.

Its an '88. I think I'll run some carb cleaner through it and see if it crispens up.

Have you had this boat for awhile and it's always done it, or did it just start doing it. Just trying to see if it's proped right or not.

One thing to try is activating the choke (primer) and see what happens. Just a quick push of the key. If it picks up, then you have a carb problem.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
