sounds like he needs to get it bled try to keep priming it as it is running it should pick up this gas and start sucking itself eventually hopefully this is all it is

Also might need to check the fuel line. Anytime you run anything out of gas you risk sucking up dirt, debris from the bottom of the fuel tank. Unhook the fuel line and blow it out, then check the carb. as well. If he's using an in-line fuel filter, he may want to replace that too.

Any water in the fuel will migrate to the bottom of the fuel tank as well. The only way to get rid of it in the carb is to drain the carb if possible. R&R the carb if all else fails.

IMO any boat running a built in fuel tank should have a separator/filter in-line.
