"I have a 1 lunger that up until a month or so ago ran flawlessly. Suddenly, when a prospective buyer was looking at the boat, it took about 5 minutes to get it started. It used to take 5-10 seconds when cold. Now, after sitting for a couple of days, it is very hard to start, 5 min + . After it starts, it runs like a top. When I restart it after several hours, it starts instantly. The starter seems like it is turning it over at the normal speed..."
