      Jeff makes a good point; this was an unusually foul year on the Bay.  I had similar rpm problems with my Yanmar (it only reached 2,000) and the boat was just plain slow under power.  I don’t recall having any black smoke.  I had a diver clean the bottom and all the symptoms disappeared.  Obviously, this won’t solve your starting problems, but that could be a different issue entirely.

      Will it rev over 1500 out of gear when warmed up?
      If you didn't use the boat much, is the prop/hull fouled with growth?

      After a miserable summer and fall of non-sailing due to illnesses, weather and life in general, I found my W18 increasingly tough to start, with lots of cranking and black smoke.  When I got out, it wouldn't rev over 1500 and was pushing out plumes of black smoke.  I'm thinking dirty/leaky injectors.  Any other thoughts or sugggestions?
