Water can also get into the fuel system through the breather tube if tipped to hard or flooded with water. Please respect the equipment.
Sometimes things such as the battery being ran down, due to not knowing how to prime an outboard or throttle only on a cold start on an inboard. So know what you are doing. Many tutorials online, ask if you don't know, or if something isn't working.
