I had a similar problem on a motorbike,kept cutting out and couldnt restart,I eventually sussed (after a lot of pushing)that it went further distances before cutting out when there wasnt much fuel so took the bodywork apart and sure enough the tank breather was squashed under the seat,no problems since so check the breather pipe is clear.

Some boats fitted with an inboard fuel tank will have a cut of tap,worth checking that is turned fully on.

That's a very good point Gavin.

Jlanng, have you resolved your Engine issues, we'd all be quite interested in finding what the problem was.

Thanks for the continued suggestions chaps. I'm going to plop it in the water again next weekend, should have something to report soon thereafter.

I expect we'll go down to Mudeford. Not far from where it's currently kept.
