Good point on shutting off fuel supply. :D
If I don't start my engines every couple of days I have to crank for ever to get fuel up to carbs. :x
I shut the valves off last night and will wait a week to see if this corrects the problem. 07/01/2020--

Yes, I do have anti siphon valves at each tank and yes they are clean.

Okay, after 12 days. I turned the fuel cocks back on and started both engines with out a problem. :D
I took the boat out for a ride. 8-)
Everything worked as it should. I will definitely be turning my fuel cocks off from now on when I leave the boat for any length of time. :P
And yes I did post a note at the helm that the fuel cocks where shut off. ;)
