Boat Issues

6 posts in this topic

I have a 1991 Nitro Bass Tracker with a 150 Johnson on the back. Last spring I encountered a problem with the motor cutting out on me. When the fuel tank is full the boat runs like a champ. When the tank gets down to half or a little less and you go to accelerate the boat cuts out. When the nose is up in the air or even when I take a sharp corner the boat automatically cuts out! Just wondering if anyone has encountered this problem or might know how to fix it. We have checked for vapor lock on the breather and that is not the case. We have checked the fuel lines and they are in good shape. Any advise is appreciated. Thanks and good luck on the ice.

Welcome to FM Ace. Sounds like there is possibly a hole in the pick up tube in the tank.

I third the fuel tank idea. When the weather warms up, check out the pick up tube in the tank.

That was going to be our next course of action..... Thanks for the responses. If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions keep them coming. Having not looked at it too closely yet, does that coupler on the top just screw out of the tank or how do you take that apart?

They can differ, but for the most part, they should unscrew.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
