I have an older 6hp blue Evinrude boat motor.

It is easier to start at first.

After we run it for 30 minutes to go across the lake, the motor will stop and not run again. Very hard to get it to start again.

I changed the spark plug.

What should I try next to fix?

Is water spitting out of exhaust? may be overheating and need a new impeller:dontknow:

i had the same motor and same problem. two new coil packs at $20 a piece and it was fixed. the old ones were falling apart in pieces. take off the flywheel and check

Yes, water is circulating. We will change the coils. Thanks.

It's a bit of work to do but worth replacing them for sure.
