Technical question....

Hi all

A technical quickie for you all ( I hope)

We've just had a fantastic weekend in the sun on our 4.0 honwave however, our 15 hp 2s mariner has developed a strange habit......
It runs perfectly and never misses a beat but when I stop for a couple of minutes and restart, it seems a bit starved of fuel and cuts out when I select a gear, every time. As soon as I give it a little bit of choke or a couple of seconds, it's fine again....

Any thoughts, is this just evaporation?

Technical question

Could be a pinhole in the squeezy bulb. Easily checked, just give the bulb a squeeze next time you need to hot start.
