Hey fellow Parker owners!

I have. 1801 with a Yamaha F115. This past Friday I made a run to Catalina. After running WOT for about 25 mins, I turned the motor off to get some gear ready and I had a hard time starting the motor back up.
The motor wouldn’t start unless I used the free accelerator and had the throttle in full reverse. I did this a few times during the day but it would start normally on a few different occasions as well.
What do you this is causing this? Thanks guys!

Not a Parker owner, but I have had similar hard starting issue in the past with the 115 4 stroke on my Stringari Skiff. Generous use of Yamaha Ring Free and changing the plugs more frequently seems to have eliminated the problem.
