I cant say for sure if your boat is wired in a standard manner or wile e coyote style which is pretty common in older A4 boats

The tack can be bad and short out the ignition so i would remove the tack wire from the coil to see how it goes

The electric fuel pump SHOULD be wired through and oil pressure switch which would not allow the pump to run without oil pressure BUT that should not affect ignition

At this point i would connect a meter with clips while its runing and see IF your losing power when it stops and work from there

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
