    My boat has been stored in the garage for most of the summer and not started since April. Tried to trim it up to put the transom saver on it and nothing. Tried to turn it over. Nothing. Battery is fully charged but I think I've got a short somewhere.

    Wondering if anyone has suggestions/idea where I should start looking to fix the problem?
  2. remove and clean battery cables if that doesn't work then check fuses. simplest things first!

    Cleaned battery posts and cables. I'll check fuses tonight.
