After I turn off the engine, and put the ignition key into the "accessory" position, the radio and other electronics cut off. I took the batteries out and had them tested...they seem to be fine. Any other suggestions of what I can check/replace/fix before I yank the boat out of the water and bring it into a dealer?

thanks

Does anything turn on in the accessory position? If not the ignition switch may be suspect.

As you suspected this is typically caused by a low battery. Mine was doing the same thing when I had my dual battery set incorrectly and not charging the "house" batter. What voltage are you seeing on the batteries. They should be over 13 volts.
