I did let it cool, pushed reset on the panel...not a gig.
Checked the inline fuse, it was ok, replaced it anyway.
Light on the panel comes on when selected, which tells me it is between the switch and the motor. I am leaning to motor failure at this point. Boat was on the hard for the last boating season, so this is the first go in two years.
Thanks for your suggestions, greatly appreciated indeed!
