Yanmar 1GM10 won't start.

The usually reliable 1GM10 on my boat suddenly won't start. One day fine, today... no starting. I have ruled out the following:
Fuel filters
Fuel supply
Fuel system properly bled
No blockage in air intake
No blockage in exhaust

Fires briefly with starter fluid in air intake...
(I assume that means compression is OK)

Help, racing on Sunday. I do not feel like paddling in and out of the marina.
