1.start the the motor at night w/ the cover off and see if u have any arcing
next jiggle all the wires w/an insulated screwdriver
again looking for arcing

2. check your water/fuel seperator for water

Are u sure it is electrical and why?

If so >>>clean ur ground on the coil on what u think is the offending cyl.

I HAVE HEARD that a power pack can be bad and cause the same prob. but rare

I will put a $ that it is a bad plug wire or plug

do the simple inane stuff first

Repeat >I love my boat  ;)

I would ck the wire things and if does show anything wrong change all the coils and their wires--they are probably the originals
