A little hard to say.. Should clear on its own. Try disconnecting the batteries for an hour ... if I remember correctly there are different types of bedpan for each malfunction.... Long and on to short beeps in different sequences. One thing that makes a boat act like it has a gremlin is a failing thermostats... Chevy Serra does the same backwards flips. So if the batteries load test good and the connections are solid then I'd be checking for a partially plugged thermostat or restricted cooling line or failing water pump. ( change at least every three years , ) costs a few hundred dollars to service an engine , takes a lifetime to row back in.

I feel your carburettor has a faulty float. It allows the gas to keep flowing till the engine is full or flooded. The float is made to cut the flow of gas off when the engine shuts down.

These engine adjustments vary by year, but the later models had their idle RPM adjusted with the boat in the water to account for exhaust back-pressure. Actual idle speed is set by adjusting the Idle Timing while the unit is in gear in the water. Check the service manual for actual timing specifications, the owner's manual won't have this information.
