I have really done something off with my Chapman Seadog engine. I can't get it to start. I have followed all advice re magneto setting, but have done something to cause it not to start. There is a spark, fuel and the engine runs freely.
The boat is at the Rose Bay Marina and will be there until April 28th. I'd love to have an expert down to help me get it running. I will pay for the help! The best days would be the 27th or 28th of April.

I have had the same kind of mystery a couple of years ago - really really frustrating.
Eventually I found that I had a little water in the carb float bowl - I thought I had fuel, but I really didn't.
I drained everything, and it fired right up on the second crank
