Here's what happened, I launched the boat with no problem. I went to an area to fish, shut down the motor. I fished for about 45 minutes. I was going to move to another area, when I went to start the motor it would turnover but wouldn't start. I checked the voltage gauge and it showed 12 volts. The motor eventually started. I went to another area to fish and the same thing. 2 years ago the same thing happened. Both power packs or switch boxes, whatever you want to call them, were replaced and the crankin' battery is less than a year old. Could it be the power packs?? Any suggestions??

Needless to say not a good day on the water yesterday.

95 Mercury 200 XRI. I'm thinking the bulb may need to get replaced.
