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.

    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
