Crossed battery wires

Ok- I was in hurry and had a boat loaded with family ready to go skiing. I connected the battery and crossed the wires- plus to minus etc.. Needless to say, we didn't go boating- boneheaded!

1996 Prostar 190, nothing smoked and all of my gauges work. The engine turns over but I'm not getting ignition. I've checked the fuses at the top of the engine- all good. Battery wires functioning. Where could the problem be? I recall hearing about his before- a fried resistor in the distributor? Any help would greatly be appreciated!
