The GFI issue is a serious one and potentially lethal to people in the water around the boat and to people on the boat. With a little electrical knowledge It should take about five minutes to track that down and it is something your surveyor should have checked. The issue is either reverse polarity in the power post (possible) or a neutral ground connection on your boat (most likely).

Your inverter may vert well be charging your batteries as many units are charger/inverters with both capabilities, look at the data plate on the unit and it will tell you.
