Some boats have a breaker fuse close to the battery, and at the main power panel. Also check battery terminal.

True story

When we first bought the boat, changed fuel filter. Being a newby did not have about air in the fuel line. Well the diesel engine died. While cranking the engine lost the DC power. To make matters worse we were being blown into the lake Union police dock. We finally found the blown fuse but not a spare fuse. Well we did gey blown into the police dock, causing some excitement.

However the police where some what freindly and helpful got the boat started. Anyway that was our introduction to the lake union police.
