Well folks I need a little help. I bought a boat not too long ago and it was runing great, but now I'm having a problem.

The engine is a03 200hp Mercury. The problem is that sometimes when I hit the throttle the engine will bog down and shut off if I don't throttle back. I can sit there for a minute hit it again and it may or may not do the same thing. Sometimes it is just fine and runs like a striped tail turkey!

Replaced the Fuel filter and the water/fuel seperator. I'm thinking spark plugs and wires next. Or just mechanic so I know it's fine. Any other suggestions?
