Lol and this is the exact reason why I haven't changed these yet.

I feel your pain, running through the same sort of issues. I'm so frustrated at this point that I've started tearing the entire boat apart.

Have you had the ECM checked yet? Curious as to your next moves. Subscribed.

What did your plugs look like? Were they all the same color? Light brown... not black and oily I hope

Let me check the plugs these days! Last time they were okay.
The ECM I can not check by myself. Need my mechanic but he is on vacation.
Last time he checked it and told me the MAP sensor is broken (wrong signal) -> Changed the MAP sensor.
Now he has to look into it again to see what's happen!

Yesterday a auto mechanic was at the neighbors boat. He told me at the engine is not a lot like sensors and electric -> Has to be something with fuel the supply, ignition or the exhaust.
The exhaust I did not check by the way.
