Having issues with this new (to me) boat, it can be a beast to start - it ranges from 4 - 40 times trying to get it started.
Here is what I have done (along with a mechanic servicing it, which helped to at least get it running):
Carb was disassembled, cleaned and reassembled.
I filled up the gas tank with 5 gallons of 93 premium and 12.8 or so ounces of Penzoil 2 stroke oil - 50:1 mix per the bottle.
I bought a brand new marine battery (starting) as the existing one was kind of weak.
Replaced spark plugs with new NGK's.
So.. where to go from here? I'm new to 2 stroke engines, but they can't be this temperamental right?
