Had the boat out for a short run. Did a power turn and when I came out of it the engine sputtered 3 times then died. Went to restart and no power at the key. Pulled fuse and it was blown. Inserted new fuse and blew that one. Any ideas???

sounds like a short... maybe during powerturn u jarred wire loose... for the fuse to blow that quick. trace the power wire on that circuit and see what it is touching.....

x2. power turns can make wires touch that normally wouldn't. Short for sure. Visual inspection next.
