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?

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
