    Unhappy Possible Vapor Lock issue?

    Hello all,

    I have a 2008 LSV with the Indmar V-drive. I have had two occasions where I will run my boat around for 30 minutes to an hour, and then drop anchor to chill for a while. When I go to start back up, the boat acts like it's starving for fuel. It turns over just fine, and will sometimes start for a few seconds, but very rough. The only way I have been able to fix this is to find my in-line fuel filter, and pop it off and release the pressure from the line, and then sit for another 15 minutes or so. Once I get it running again, it runs strong and smooth. I always put the highest octane fuel available in the tank. I have read a little about vapor locks, but I don't completely understand the cause. Would it help to ad a fuel/water separator to the system? I have also heard running the blower for 5-10 minutes after helps. Any help would be awesome; this is quite frustrating.
