    My boat will sometimes start but will not maintain itself/stay on when i bring the IDLE back down to off and transition into DRIVE or REVERSE. We looked at the motor and carburetor and we think the choke is not working properly. I will send video and pictures as needed.

    Mercury 115 engine, 2 stroke, 1986-1989 Quick fire fish and ski boat on lake petersburg, illinois.

    Thanks in advance!
