emergence lanyard still in place??


Is the boat in neutral

I only ask because back in the day I had both of these things ruin my lake day. The lanyard a buddy pulled out and tried to put it back but didn't do it right. And didn't tell me he messed with it until 2 days later after I pulled all my hair out trying to fix it.

The throttle I did because I powered onto the trailer and just reached up and cut the boat off but forgot to pull it back into neutral. So the next time I got to the lake it wouldn't start. Until I realized it wasn't in neutral about 1-1/2 hours later.

there is also a big fuse near the starter (90 amp). Maybe that popped. or the breaker switch on top of the motor...maybe that tripped

Negative battery terminal. Simple thing but the killer of many boats. Take the black wire of the battery terminal and clean the terminal and wire with a metal bristle brush. IF that does not work, check where the wire connects to the motor. I've had this same thing happen to me in three different boats.

Update I’ve changed distributor cap , ignition module in the cap , rotor , coil and plug wire going from coil to distributer and still dose the same thing. I dropped it off at shop to have it looked at and of course it wouldn’t mess up (he ran it with the water hose) so I took it to the lake started fine ran great and again 30 to 40 min on the water I shift to neutral and boom dies and won’t start back up turns over fine just won’t fire. We dropped it back off and an hour later He looks at it and said it would barley turn over and voltage was low so he charged battery and unplugged all radio stuff, put a charged battery on it and he said the voltage was still low. All this started to happen when I got radio working

Safety switch is good and I know itís in neutral cause when itís not it dosent spin over at all. He also said their were some speaker wires that came loose and were arcing pretty bad so I hope that didnít fry anything. I just donít get why it runs fine and just dies after 30 min .
