Believe it or not, I once had a sailboat with an 4 cylinder inboard engine that had a defective ignition condencer that would short out after the engine ran a while and the condencer got warm and the engine would die. After a suitable cool-down period, the short would end and the engine would re-start. What a bitch that problem was to identify, but only a 1 minute fix (slap in a new condencer). I suggest you try the same fix, and while you are in there, clean and gap the points and check the base engine timing.
