wasnt sure where to post this. but, i guess this is the most likely spot. i have an 18' allweld john boat with 4-srtoke 90. i bought it last spring and luv it. i usually take it out 1-3 times a week. i havent had any problems so far. the catch is i was planning on building a bigger boat shed for it this spring, because it wouldnt fit in my old one. i have been keeping it under a boat cover and it has worked well (sort of). during hunting season i was gone for most of 2 and a half months. every time i got home i would check to make sure that there was no water trapped in the cover or int he boat. last 2 weeks we have gotten a collosal amount of rain. i walked by my boat to check on it and to my horror i discovered that not only had the cover collected water, but also the drain hole had a piece of trashg clogging it. that in turn caused the boat to fill up with water--all the way over the top of the batteries. i almost wept. i drained the water off and cranked the motor. the motor cranked just fine, but i only ran it for a few seconds. i was worried that somehow water might have gotten into a gas line. (not really sure if it is possible?) next i tried turning on my master switch to operate all of the electronics. f-finder, lights, bilge pump, aerator, etc... nadda. try again, nadda. my question is. after i let it dry out. if it does work again, is thier any extra maintnance i should do to the wiring? if it does not work, what are the chances that it is just the battery? i am pretty good with my hands for most things EXCEPT electricity. i skipped that class. (hindsight 20/20). any tips or advice would be very very welcome. thanks, J.D. p.s. i am starting on the new boat shed this weekend.
