1993 351 coil question

After running hard all summer I have had the boat just shut down a few times.... I put my hand on the coil and it was supper hot. I just bought 2 from skidim just to have a back up!! The coil on the boat is about 3 years old. Ya thing I'm on the right track with this one?

How hot was it? Did the boat stall on you? It will generate heat you know. Did you replace it with one of the new ones? Did the temp change?

It could be a failing ignition module. Not sure whether you have the original or a Pertronix replacement in your boat - but for $125 I would suggest replacement, unless you’ve already done that in the last few years.
