The rubber bowl gasket can be fiddly and either twist or wrinkle out of its slot, causing the leak.  Sometimes hard to see because it's so skinny.

There seems to be a proliferation of Mokai issues and it makes me ask why there is support for such a boat? There are other choices out there, namely, Jet Angler, formally known as Stik Boat. It has the speed, agility and best of all,  >:D no-one out there trying to make it better.  ;) . I enjoyed the Mokai until I was confined into the cockpit because of the water current I was in. The Stik, or Jet Angler if you wish, allowed me to fish where the Mokai wouldn't allow just because of it's power. The stability of the boat allowed me to fish even more...I could stand where sitting in the Mokai would be more constricted. Painless, let there be diversity or let there be none. Every boat has it's own use...catfishing vs. salmon and trout. Mokai and Jet Angler have their place and I hope we can work together...you have great talent.

I allow conversation about the stik boat here, but I started this forum in support of the Mokai and the work I do to make them better. If you want to start your own forum revolving around the stik boat, spend the $$ and jump on it. haha Stik boats have more problems than the Mokai and having all proprietary parts with zero aftermarket support, you are hoping the company is available to sell you what you need... Like the pump housing when you need a wear ring, there isn't one, the pump housing is the wear ring and you need to replace the entire thing.. Search here for stick boat and you will find multiple threads listing all the quality control issues those boats have, as well as the customer support failings. I think the stik boat would be more comparable to the 2.0 since that model was chasing speed and has no option for a clutch. What I do with the original Mokai compared to the stik boat is apples to oranges, and the Mokai is far better in quality.

For me, there are no issues. Tom offers the best customer service hands down. The issues are with Mokai as well as Stik boat according to the posts on  this Forum of both companies, including your own.
 Tom only offers a service to fix the problems that Mokai created. He has lent his advice to both Stik and Mokai owners. After reading your post a few times, I'm not understanding the reason why or what your trying to say.
I'm glad you enjoy your Stik boat, cause I really enjoy my Painless Mokai.

You could just send the carb, usually that's where the problem would lie anyhow. Cheap to send that.  ;)

Iíll check the bowl first, as the gas was just under it. I need to find a small engine guy that doesnít charge $100 an hour! Worst case scenario, I sent it to Tom, but I donít want to have to do that every time I have a problem.
Iím not too worried about the leak, itís very small. The engine cutting off is the main problem.

I have a feeling it will end up in Georgia soon, but not yet.

This time I noticed some gas under the engine before putting it in, and when I pulled it out, there was some more.
Iíll have to trace the fuel line for leaks, but this only started after I had it apart. It was bone dry before.


If fuel lines are problematic, that's easy fix. However, if you do not find anything, consider that the leak may not be from fuel lines. I had carb leaking gas around the bowl. Whenever you take bowl out and put it back,  the gasket might not seat/seal seal properly. I ended up replacing it. It is also possible that your needle is not working as it should and does not seal well. Did you check needles condition? If the needle is problematic you'll have gas leaking from bowl vent opening (I am not sure about exact location). And keep in mind that all these troubles are due to subpar design of the whole system where a fuel pump with no return line is just keeps putting excessive pressure on the carb that is designed to be used with gravity feed (= very little pressure).

It can be a guessing game with the fuel issue. Took me a few seasons to resolve.
I had a leak in the hose from the fuel filter to the carb. I ended up replacing the zip ties with a small hose clamp. We replaced the carb and had water in the fuel from the dealer.
Hopefully your problem is simple and gets fixed a lot quicker.

Unfortunately, the problem is still there. After three minutes of 3/4-1/4 throttle, it started to sputter really loud, then died. For the first time it DID start up enough to get to the ramp, but thatís all. When it died the second time, it backfired big time!

This time I noticed some gas under the engine before putting it in, and when I pulled it out, there was some more.

Not sure where to go from here.
