I recently purchased my first boat, an '08 Moomba Mobius LSV. I immediately began working out little bugs, fixing things, and looking for mods to do...and this messageboard has byfar been one of the best tools I could have asked for. Everything I've wanted to know about my new boat, plus much more I never thought of, I have found here thanks to all of you.

Additionally on my third trip out with the boat, I experience the oh-so-common vapor-lock issue (which I was previously unaware of). I was at a dock/bar with 11 people loaded up ready to go back out on the water...when suddenly the boat won't start. After troubleshooting for 5 minutes I decided it was either too much or too little fuel. On a whim I pulled out my phone and searched here on the forums, and low and behold I immediately have a solution. Cooled the fuel-pump off, started the boat, and off we were.

So thank you to everyone on here for all of the help/information, as well as saving the day for my friends and I on our first vapor-lock experience (plus they thought I was a genius when I found the solution so quickly--thanks to this message board). I hope to give back and start helping others in the future the way you all have helped me.

Sincerely,

Brad

Weren't you just a little tempted to go "Alright, everyone get out and push" ?

Welcome aboard - glad to have you here!

After we had the issue we started to open the engine cover after running in hot weather. It will let the heat escape before vapor lock can happen. Just wish there was a auto off blower that we could sent once boat is docked.
Hope you enjoy your LSV and welcome to the group

Nope. You have to give all of us FREE pictures of your boat.

This might come in handy:
