Believe it or not, I've noticed a world of difference by just throttling the gas once or twice before attempting to start. If it doesn't start on the first try. I throttle one more time before trying again. Since doing this, the idling and backing out have been smoother.

Pumping the throttle is required to set the choke and prime the engine on a carbureted engine. Not sure why backing out is impacted by this as you should wait until the engine temp gauge has started moving to normal range before attempting to move the boat.
