Water in the fuel? Hope you get in safe. There should be plenty of boat traffic out there to help you out.

Could also be the fuel pump man if your bulb is hard and your fuel pump ain't Pullin from there it could be it. Also your fuel filter could be clogged that's easy to check I've seen two different kinds for a Yamaha one if you looking at the motor right side gonna be a bulb if it's water or either way pull it off pump the crap out ya bulb and get all the trash out then put it on n try it. Fuel usually don't give a warning buzzer
