Default anyone here know about k&b outboard engines??

Having a problem with my 3.5 k&b outboard, as soon as it hits the water it dies, not matter what the idle speed, high or low! I know this is not a redcat but figured i would ask.

I was always afraid that if I got a boat I'd end up losing it in the middle of a lake or somthing. I'd be compelled to attach a real long string to it or somthing just incase.

actually that why i have an electic traxxas boat, its kinda fast but my nitro's are much faster, its the rescue boat. I fooled with it today but i may have been running it a little lean so will try again tomorrow, they are much harder that the cars to tune plus there's only one needle.
