Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling

Hi All: have had my repowered (1991) yanmar in pearson 30 for one season and always ran great. then after topping off tank for the winter it started and after about 5 seconds petered out with a lot of shaking and stopped. couldn't restart, though never applied more throttle as said elsewhere on this forum, since never needed to before. manual says to check air intake and fuel (obviously). only checked and cleaned sea strainer first (it wasn't too bad). could an air intake or vent be related to filling the tank? the final level was definitely below the neck. i think this is original tank, probably from an original universal? i'll check the fuel filter(s) next but would like to know of people's opinions also.
