I have a 2007 115 with slightly more than 300 hours and I have experienced an unusual problem with the main engine fuse blowing. On my last 3 fishing trips the exact same thing has happened. Upon launching the boat, I trim the engine down, start it up and motor over to the dock. Everything working fine. I let the engine run while I wait for my buddy to park the truck and get bait. As soon as I accelerate after leaving the dock, the engine bogs down, and the trim & tach doesn't work. The engine will run slow. If I turn the key off, the engine will not restart. When I replace the fuse, the engine runs perfectly all day. I am baffled. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Kurts, you could have  shorting wires somewhere in  the harness/system what you describe is very estrange,  check your engine while  on the trailer with the engine running move wires and connection to see if you can duplicate the problem
