Is it true that I should replace my Holley carburetor on my American Skier with a marine carburetor? Not an automotive carburetor.

No question about it. Its a safety concern. Like BIG BOOM possibly safety concerns.

Just FYI, Holley is not the only manufacturer that produces marine specific carbs.

List number on the air horn and then look it up on Holley List number cross reference.
When people run down to the lake to see what is making that noise, you've succeeded.
