Looking for some help. I just bought a used 2007 sea pro with a 2007 merc 4 stroke. We did a sea trial boat ran great. We got the moter looked at hip marine compression, upper lower oil done, spark plugs, and over all inspection everything came out good. So the first time I go to take it out the moter runs bad stalls out when going from neutral to forward or reverse. Smoking and when we put a load an it to go faster felt jerky and like it wasn't running on all cylinders. I took the boat back to the shop but I keep thinking what could it be. Any suggestions would be helpfull to me thanks

Sounds like the fuel has gone bad. I am going through this right now with fuel that was purchased on Oct 24th last year - pretty much 3 months old. Not sure if this is your issue but it's worth checking out.

There wasn't much gas left in the tank and we filled it up that morning. The boat was never run out side of Hip. So they have it now. I was hoping maybe one of the new spark plugs was bad or something they looked over.

Thanks

I just got off the phone with Hip marine. It looks like the bladders inside the fuel pump we're broke. So there replacing the fuel pump and fuel line. There confident that was the problem. So there doing the work. Wish me luck haha

Yep but I spoke with the guy that sold me the boat and he's super cool were going to split the cost. What he was telling me is it's the vapor sensor and hose. Which on that year motor this was a problem.
