I have an 06 xstar with the mcx engine...I left the heater switch in the on postion but the key turned off and went to put the boat in but the batteries had been drained...I jumped the boat off and it idled ok but when I put it into gear it had no power and would pull the boat off the trailer...my question is does the alternator with no battery not enough to run the boat on or is there another issue causing this?

The battery was completely dead right? How long did you "jump" it?

It was dead...a warning type of beep went off a minute....I let it run for only about 2 minutes before trying to back it off the trailer.
