All this is from ethanol fuel. Your going to have to tear down and clean those carbs real good. A soaking in a heated ultrasonic cleaner with good cleaner in it for at least 45 minutes will clear the crud from all the passages.

The dark stuff on your intakes below the carb base is a sealer they put on the gaskets before reinstalling the carbs when they had them off.

Once you get it running, keeping ethanol treatment in your fuel or running non-ethanol fuel and using a switch to cut off your electric fuel so you can run it out of fuel will be your best defense to keep this from happening again. All that humidity down there in Hampton is sucked up by the ethanol in your fuel.
