Suggest you drain the carb if it is not going to be used for a week or so

Exactly what I was thinking - fuel starved. Just can't figure out how something got messed up this early. It's one month old, used 3 times and I always run super instead of regular just like my other boats.

Go sailing now my brother,
It's later than you think.
