2000 Outback 5.7 Carb Indmar- Last season ran up river for an hour no issues- shut off for an hour- rode back down the river and it acted like it ran out of fuel- got it to run then it wouldnt restart- no fuel-
replaced the fuel pump- Carter electric- Replaced plugs,wires,cap, rotor while I was was there- Took it out and had same issue-- Drained tank,rebuilt carb,replaced distributor module and changed fuel pressure sensor from 3 wire to two wire-- Took it out again and did the same thing- What else could it be? Fuel line? Circuit breaker? Oh yeah only 165 hours.....

Check your fuel lines. Look for anywhere it takes a bend, especially one of more than 90 degrees. When things warm up an old fuel line can get soft and suck closed under load. Very hard to diagnose as when the load is removed it will start right up again and run fine.
