Still no joy, have a coil on order, as it couldn't hurt to swap that out anyway... Due to rain, my "onsite" guy with the boat hasn't been able to scour the engine for checking connections, etc. Hopefully will have some info later today.

Again, thanks for all the replies guys, any and all ideas/thoughts are appreciated!

Update!

Just wanted to post an update on the Spark problem discussed in this thread.

It turns out that once the bro-in-law and I started tracing wires, we found the issue almost at the beginning. There was a little corrosion at the Ignition switch, so after some wiggling, cleaning and tightening, she fired up.

Thanks again for all of the help and replies!

-Mook.

A Similar symptom, different problem

Had a similar problem with my 2002 Prostar 209. Electrical items started "dropping out" after hitting wakes. Stereo went. PerfectPass then dropped. Gauges started failing (not all at once.

Turns out one of the large AMP connectors up under the dash was underneath a zip tie that was tight enough to "unlock" the latch and it started to unplug it self, at an angle, with every wave I hit, causing the pins in the connector to become disconnected one at a time. Easy fix but tough to track down something this simple.
