Have you tried checking filters in racor, secondary (if you have one) and lift pump. I am sure you will find a lot of information about fuel related issues in the archive. I would take a look at all of the filters just to see if they look clear. If not, you might be sucking some gunk through. Was your fuel tank agitated much? That could loosen gunk and clog either the intake or filters or both. That could be a source of low rpms. Not sure what to attribute the black smoke to. I am a startron convert and highly recommend it to my marina friends.

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?

Subject: [SabreSailboat] Attention gearheads
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?
