So I just got he Modius ('99 Carb) in the water this weekend. Starter her witht he fake-a-lake at home. After a few minute of what wseemed like getting the cobwebs out, it died and would not respond at all to the key. Other battery run devices worked fine. After about 1-3 minutes of down time, the ignition circuit breaker tripped.

I reset it, and she started right up. Ran for a couple minutes, then same behavior. Reset, tried again and seem to be working. So brought to ramp, started in water on trailer , seemed OK - and was jsut about to shove off. same behavior. Tried one more time. same..

This happened to us just once at beginning of season last year. No problems rest of year. So now she is in the shop.

anyone ever seen this kind of symptom? I would like to have an idea what to expect from the shop- I doubt it will be cheap.

Turns out it was a fuel pump. We are back in business and on the water - Summer officially starts today. Too bad it is only 46 and windy...
