Thanks guys, you've given me some excellent suggestions to go on!

The boat is fitted with a 100l underfloor tank - should I really have had to open a vent manually as with the smaller jerry can tanks? I should have opened the filler cap to see if there was a big vacuum causing the problem. Checking the primer bulb would also have been very sensible. You live and learn

No the tank will be self venting!

A very useful thread.........

......considering I also run the same engine. Good luck with your inverstgations, however, if still under warranty, please make sure you don't invalidate this by "having a crack at it youself".

Are they not always open though? I can see what jlanng is saying, surely you wouldn't have to unscrew a vent on a large in built fuel tank?

Does sound like a fuel problem. My little yamaha did that when I met up with everyone for the first under 5m IOW cruise. It wouldn't go to nearly full power so I switched the tanks over and it was fine. When I got home I took the thingy out of the tank and made sure it was all clear and its been fine ever since.

Tim, yes that is what I'm saying the tank is self venting, you can not shut it off! It has a permanent open vent.

Still it is worth investigating the vent! could be the tube inside the console or where ever your fuel tank is located is kinked or blocked. Just eliminates another potential problem me thinks.
