I seem to have a short someplace else that is causing overall problems. I went through the entire ignition following all of the purple wires. I was actually losing most of the volts between the ignition relay and ignition coil.
One interesting thing, if I only hook up the main battery terminals, not the smaller blower, lights, etc., the gauges turn on as normal when the key is put in start. The engine will not start though. If I try to start it, everything cuts off. If I hook the smaller battery cables up to the battery, the gauges never come on, and I drop voltage between the ignition coil and relay.
BTW, I am pretty sure they would be able to sell these boats for half the money if they didn't use so much electrical tape...
