Did it run well for the sea trial?
How long did it run on the trial?
How old is the fuel in the tanks?
Does it smell like old paint?
Were you using the same fuel tank during the sea trial as you did when the problems showed up?
Was the engine backfiring and coughing or spitting or just running rough?
Was there any smoke in the exhaust? If so what did it look like?
Do the engines start easily?
Do the engines idle smoothly?
Is the problem only under load?
Can you run them up to full rpm in neutral?
Did you drain the carb bowls to check for water?
Were engine temperatures normal?
