There's no way for anyone here to know the cause- we don't know the boat's history.

Make sure the harness is plugged in completely and the rear area hasn't been flooded. Use a multi-meter to determine if you have good voltage and ground and if the voltage isn't there, check it at the switch. If you have nothing at the switch, you have a blown fuse or breaker. Could be a bad switch, but that's rare. If you have voltage when the switch is pressed in both positions, the motor is bad. You should be able to have that rebuilt. Otherwise, the manufacturers' name is on the cylinder.

If you haven't been leaving the cover open over the winter, start doing that.
