Default boat batteries

from what I can see the black ground cable was already attached to the
terminal wire. So all I should have to do is connect it to the new
batteries. If the diods in the alternator are fryed will that cause
this problem?

I disconnected the batteries and pushed in the red circuit breaker and
then reinstalled the batteries. Still nothing. What about the
alternator diods?

Don't know, but listen to JIMinFL. He knows these systems well.

The reason I suggested that you disconnect the batteries is that if
somewhere you have a short, something may get hot in time. I wouldn't leave
them connected if you are not there troubleshooting.

Don't worry about the alternator just yet. Do you have any test equipment?
Are all your battery connections clean and tight? If you are using wing nuts
on the battery posts, throw them away and install hex nuts instead.

Mark,
Hello, sounds like you have a simple problem, but you need to work
through the electrical system from the battery forward to the engine's
electrical system. Call me at my shop and I'll walk you through it.
Call me at 601-366-4999 (Mon - Fri 8am - 5pm CDT) I would be glad to
help.
Rob

1 Set battery selector switch to both
2 Clip test leads to battery. (Observe proper polarity) If lights light up
go to step 3
3 Move red lead to lug on starter solenoid that connects to the wire that
goes to the battery selector switch. If lights light up try tilt and trim.
Try to crank over engine with key (just for 1/2 second. don't let engine
start).
4 report your findings.
