Palmer 60 troubleshooting

Hi all, I have a 1974 Islander 30 MK II with a Palmer 60 marine engine. Recently I was motoring along and the engine died with no warning, after a brief panic we were able to restart, this happened a second time, after restarting we headed in only to have it die just outside our slip, good luck, we coasted in. Plenty of fuel, with the key on I checked the fuel pump and it was pumping and fuel was flowing through the visual filter. I reached along the starboard side of the engine and placed my hand under the carb and gas was being pushed out the carb throat. Is this caused by a stuck needle valve in the carb or what????? Any help or suggestions would be great.
thanks, and Happy Sailing,,,,,,,,,,,,Rick
